(this is ONLINE Supersock in Caribbean colorway. )
Here they are. All finished up. I LOVE them. They fit just perfectly in the heel so the knit vibe must be good out there in our universe.
I should have mentioned to you that the after thought heel is, as some of you know, knitted exactly the same as the toe decreases for any sock. So you are basically knitting…..
a toe for your heel.
Clear as mud? Trust me? If you take a previously knitted sock, and put the toe of it on your heel, it will just confuse the heck out of you. But, this manner of knitting heels is way old. It is my new favorite sock method.
Now about those brrrs and burrs. My clematis is defying the odds and continues to blossom despite our near freezing night temperatures. Brrr it is chilly then.
The other Burrs are,, of course, the tiny ones that stick all over your clothing when you spend the day clearing buckthorn from your woods. They don’t hurt, but I think they may have ruined an older knitted hat I had on. Pulling the burrs off , left it looking very very tired. That’s ok. I just get to knit another hat!
Finally, dinner tonight is a treat. Our county’s Special Olympics is offering carry out dinners for ten dollars a piece from a very good restaurant in town, called SIMPLE . Everyone loves this place. It is normally open only for breakfast and lunch. I know they will do a great job and 8 out of every ten dollars goes to the cause.
ONE woman started this event 5 years ago. All on her own. It is amazing how much a kind heart can get done. And I don’t have to cook!~
