There is part of me who wants the socks finished on target, so is happy to fudge it (either by making new stitches to close the gap, or by sewing up the holes) and part of me knows that this will always bug me, so it's worth ripping it out and starting again.
Next time, I will use a different heel construction.
Meanwhile, I've been chatting with friends about going to Unravel next months and discussing the possibilities of going to Dublin with Mr Knitty for Woollinn, combined with a weekend away, in May.
To blow away the cobwebs, Mr Knitty and I have spent this afternoon feeding the ducks. And the coots, and the moorhens and the gulls, and the swans and the geese.
|A mute swan - just after it was trying to assert its authority|
|Egyptian geese - who always have better eye make-up than I do.|
I have three more days at work - and I've already planned which hand knit socks I will be wearing on those days. I just need to work out what clothes are going to go with them.
What is on the horizon for you this week?
