multitasking

I used a plastic bowl to block the tapestry yarn hat. Kyle saw it sitting on the kitchen counter, and found a use for it. So should I lightly felt it and cut an opening into it so it can take on a new life as a tea cosy?

On the sock progress front, in 20 days Da Socks went from this:

to this: The next evening I finished heel#1:
And yesterday morning I woke up early, so I grafted heel #1 closed.


I did heel #2 yesterday afternoon/evening, and just need to graft it closed.

I don't have a photo of it, because my camera macro function wouldn't be able to handle the closeup, but I managed to kitchener stitch heel #1 closed purlwise. With the Vogue Knitting book open on my lap the whole way through. What happened was that I was afraid that I was looping the yarn over itself, so I would "correct" it as I went along. I'm going to try to do it correctly for heel #2.

That hat is way too pretty to be turned into a cozy! Great work, I love the colors. It should definitely leave the house on someone's hat so the entire world can admire your knitting skills.

Love the snow, both on the blog and at your home!

I love the socks! So, do you like the afterthought heel? Wondering if I should try a pair one day!
