An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Thursday, August 16, 2012
In spite of my efforts to make sure I had the right amount of each colour wool for both flag socks, I've run out of white on the second sock. It's not a major problem - I'll just spin some more. I may be short of yellow too. That's because I had a brainwave after I'd done the dyeing and worked out how I could make the yellow part of the 'triangle' of the toes, instead of just doing a yellow stripe.
These are 'afterthought heel' socks. The orange stitches in the top picture are temporary. I'll remove them to knit the heel, when I've finished the rest of the sock.
