Almost there

Conker Feet are almost done. I finished the second slipper in bed last night. But I am not yet properly done – for when I say “finished” I have indeed done all the knitting and cast off, but have yet to apply the “finishing treatment”. I have the choice of crocheting an edge – and I don’t crochet – or, wait for this… picking up all the stitches that I just cast off and then casting them off again, but purlwise.

Now, that’s a difficult choice. I could crochet and make a mess or I can pick up and make a mess – because picking up it’s not my best skill. Let’s face it, if I plan to pick up all the stitches again, those slippers are going to languish at the bottom of my workbasket for many moons to come.

Now, where did I put those crochet hooks?

Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

    Thanks, Michelle. I think I am leaning that way myself but I do regard a crochet hook as woman’s worst enemy…
