I am currently working on the Nutkin Socks because the poncho just keeps getting bulkier and bulkier and this pattern calls for the use of a short row heel, which I have never done before. I’ve made several different socks but I’ve always done the heel flap, turn the heel, etc. I wish I had known how fast short row heels are before! I was really rather shocked at how quickly I was done with the heel. Which is great for me because I love socks but I hate doing the heel. I think I may be using the short row heel from now on so that sock knitting is a little less painful.
Also, I’ve been browsing the new Knitty and I’m awestruck by Shipwreck but I don’t know if my ADD will let me do something that intricate. It’s so amazingly beautiful and I would love to make something that stunning for my Grandma but *whew* just the thought of having to concentrate that hard makes me sweat.
I’m off to knit on those socks some more.
