Well, our camera has been replaced! We bought a new, better, faster, shinier camera that we love. Seriously. We love it.
Anyway, the crocheting project I mentioned last time has been completed, but you have to wait until I can get someone else to get a picture of it for me. Sorry. After that, though, I cast on for Hedera:
with my shiny new cakes of Gloss. It’s not good to leave them unworked too long after you wind them, you know. That’s what I hear, anyway. 😉 It’s a fun, fairly simple pattern – the lace repeat is only 10 stitches wide and four rows long, which means that even I am starting to memorize it. See?
So pretty. I am a bit concerned about whether it will fit over my heel…but we’ll see, I guess. I didn’t actually swatch, rationalizing that it would take just as much time to make a regular swatch as it would to just try it and then redo if necessary. Remind me of that when I have to frog half a sock. We’ll see if it makes me feel better.
That is really cute!! I keep thinking I should try socks…but I am intimidated!
I discovered a really neat sock pattern that has a cabled look without having to cable! You should check it out http://allbuttonedup.wordpress.com/2007/06/23/ninetofive/
I’m excited and MUST try this stitch myself, as I love the look of cables!
The sock is really pretty, btw
Oh man, that camera is great! Everytime I think a sock won’t fit over my foot, I can usually Evil Stepsister it onto my foot to loosen it up without having to frog. Good luck!
Very pretty stitch, and a wonderful pick on the color. Can’t wait to see it finished.
Hedera is looking really great Hon! I will keep my fingers crossed on the fit. Although I too have an issue with swatching. 😆
