Once you have knit 7.5” from the tip of the toes it is time to turn the heel. Knit the shortrows till you have 14 stitches left in the center.
First time using circular Cast On for a swirl toe AND since I got my 48” circs will be trying two at a time too
opted against 2 at a time - will wait for a vanilla type pattern… i’ll make up my mind once i’ve the toe done.
wasn’t able to do a swirl toe as this yarn is friable and not suited for the tug required to close the circular cast on
yarn appears to be friable once it’s been frogged or tinked back. Not a yarn that lends itself to mistakes
omg . can we say addictively soft squishy yarn to knit. I was up to 7:30 am knitting cause I just could NOT stop knitting lol
omg .. after a bind off nightmare I’ve finally finished one sock - I’ve no idea what I did or how it happened, but I had to tink back 5 rows and was fervently wishing I had done a lifeline .. like who does a lifeline on ribbing????
quick break to do a pair of mitts for kyle
48m left on ball one
