i finished my sock reno. it ended up being a tear down, but i like 'em. my arches are very high and they feel a bit baggy. ramona suggests i decrease some sts on the underside of the foot in the inch leading up to the heel flap.
I started working on a kipa for my dad in a colour he might like. but he doesn't dig it. he's really picky, really hard to pin down. i have some sea silk in a stormy blue at home but the fibre is not right for a kipa, it's too floppy. it needs a merino. maybe i'll bite the bullet and order some handmaiden or fleece artist in the colour i need. but then i need to order 3 skeins.
the yarn i am currently using for the kipa is Regia Kaffe Fassett Design Line in Landscape Fog 4253
You can now download patterns from Louet North America (they are a yarn company). you have to pay for them, but since when have we ever turned down a good pattern browse?
