Thanks everybody for your lace encouragements. I will get back on the "horse" and get to the bottom of it, but until that time.... Me and my #36 are moving around the urban trek. Here trek can be spotted trying to stop and smell the---- lilac! And here trying to climb a fence to avoid the detour. Honestly, such behavior from an unfinished pair of socks. I am making the heel flaps in two variations. One the slipped stitches line up. In the second kind, the slipped stitches of the heel flap are staggered. Why, because I want to see the difference in the same yarn AND- you are right, I don’t like to knit the same thing twice. 2 on 2 circs from the same skein from both ends is easier than I thought. As long as you figure the way to untwist from the skein, and when turning your knitting, you must alternate turning directions and you’ll avoid almost all blunders.
And I want to close today with the best quote I heard in a long time:
I am not a Stashaholic - I am a Collector! that is kind of to say- I du' know what I'll do with all that lovely yarn... suggestions are always welcome.
