So I'm sorry, I didn't take a photo of how far I got because all of a sudden I decided to frog back nearly to the beginning and knit them again two-at-a-time but side by side instead as I prefer to do. Apologies to Jane who wanted a verdict on the method but I didn't make it to the end! I guess the verdict is that, for me, it wasn't worth the extra effort. :-)
These are not particularly pretty socks, I just wanted to use leftover wool. I added a small cable and a decorative diamond in the centre of the cream part to keep it a bit interesting.
I ran out of the plain blue as I got to the ankle so I carried on with
other leftover wool. As I said, not really pretty
but they will be functional, keep my feet warm,
and use up all the little bits of wool.
I can't make up my mind yet on my favourite heel.
These are short-row heels though I also like knitting gussets and flaps.
And lastly, back to this small tatted piece which needs a centre.
I tried it with fabric but I'm not happy with the result.
With such a small circle, it's really difficult to get it looking really round.
I tried my best to fold it neatly down and hand sewed it before stitching it with the machine...
but no, not really happy with that.
Perhaps I should crochet a centre?
