Lets take it from the top, can you tell I’ve written this listening to Elaine Paige on Sunday!
A little ruffle.
The Heel, garter short row, a new favourite. So easy, believe me.
Finally the toe.
This gives the game away, the yarn was dyed to stripe but I like to be different and am very pleased with the results.
A pattern to revisit.
The boring detail.
Pattern: Mermaid by Lucy Neatby from this book which I have had some time and always been scared to use.
Yarn: Yarn Yard Bonny, Sock Club September 2008 (I think)
I did swatch, which is unknown but Lucy said it was necessary.
Cast on 84 stitches on 2.5mm needles then did the heel on 2.25mm.
This is a deceptively easy knit and I’ll be doing a few more as I think it shows off the yarn well.
Now back to the current project, not one you’ve seen.
Socktopus Sock Club Jan 2009, should be finished by the time you read this unless what you see in the header distracts me again.
Need a wheel for speed……..nooooooooooooooooo!
