Churchmouse Yarns & Teas in Bainbridge Island, Washington
March 7, 2010

6/26/15-I think I’m going to rip these out & start over. I really like the pattern, but I think I’m making it way harder than it has to be.
6/30/15-MUCH better! Switched to a gusset heel & it’s more comfortable. I started the middle “scale” (row 8) 4 rows from the end of the heel flap

7/18-tried these on today & I should have known better. The heel, even though worked over 55% of the sts, was pulling too much across my instep, so I have ripped back & will do a heel flap instead.
I made this pattern several years ago but didn’t use the right kind of yarn (too dark) so I’m going to try again with this orange, aqua, lt aqua colorway.
