Mike and I went on a mini-road trip for Thanksgiving. We visited Bedford and Bloomington, Indiana, to spend time with Mike's family and our friends. He's from there, and I lived there for the better part of a decade while attending Indiana University.
Surely, my knitting friends are already wondering what projects I brought. Well, I finished knitting the remaining sleeves for my Drops Jacket, which leaves seaming and the collar.
I brought my Femme Fatale toe-up socks to work on. I am incompetent when it comes to the short row heel. This particular heel involves "wrapping and turning" your work. That part is not difficult to understand. My trouble is how exactly you're supposed to pick up the wraps on the knit and purl sides. Where is that tutorial?!
Oh right, I found one. Thank you to Misocrafty and her Short Row Heel Tutorial, I have gotten over my mental block. My technique still needs work, but I'm not going to gouge my eyes out in frustration anymore.
Goodbye, Indiana. Now it's back to the real world!
