Finally I finished the STR socks! I know why they took me so long, because I really don't feel the love for short-row heels. I just love the flap heel. It fits my foot better and actually goes faster for me. I know that if I do the short-row method more often it will become easier, but so far I just don't love it. Anyhoo.....
I think they are Bee-YOO-tee-ful!
Pattern: my own
Yarn: STR Highway 30
Note to self: using this pattern in a solid yarn could be very nice too.
An old, and I mean very old, UFO - yay! I'm almost there:
That is the last piece (woot!) of a cardigan I have been working on, for like FOREVER! See! I really am trying to finish things! I am determined to wear this thing within the next couple of weeks!
And what is that new blob of mesh you ask? It is a crocheted shrug from the Happy Hooker book. So far so good, although it started out being for me and I am not sure I can squeeze the old body into it. If not, Alex gets a new shrug! (it is so nice having a slightly smaller than myself child to fall back on hehe)
Working on this reminds me yet again that I really like to crochet. Now to locate some more really great crochet patterns. If any of you have suggestions where to find some, let me know.
NOTE: I am so sorry that my blog still doesn't read well with Firefox. I have tried to fix it, but I still can't figure it out! Grrr.....I wish I could be a techie!
