JoJo heel once more

Well, I shall need to be convinced of some pretty clear and and obvious benefits before I get within a mile of this heel again!

To be fair, I think it would have gone better had I some 5″ needles to hand – this was certainly one way of making a mere five needles seem like fifteen.

The pattern instructions that I have are supposed to be an improvement on the ones at the Lana Grossa site. I checked them out and they were little help. I Googled and found this discussion – also not much help, nor was this site, in Finnish

This, however, was the bees knees – really clear instructions and good photographs – she got me through it and I now have a heel (and terminal exhaustion). It has taken the entire afternoon to frog and re-knit this damn heel.

It had better be worth it.

Right. Gin!

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
