Hot to Trot is heading for the frog pond.
I completed the heel and the first row of domino squares in the leg. I like the look, and the foot fits nicely – but the heel does not fit at all (too narrow and too shallow) and has holes in the shaping. I also think that the ankle is too skimpy.
So, a re-knit is required on larger needles and with a few pattern adjustments.
Maybe not in a hurry.
I’ll pick up the Pomatomus sock later today and work on that. I don’t have the heart to start again on the Smoking Hot Socks straightaway.
I took Constance into the garden this morning and sat spinning in the sun. This is what I am spinning – a Merino/Colonial batt from Copperpot, called Deep Fried Vegis – it’s tan, bottle green, and a pale yellow… like the inside of a courgette. I think I’ll try to Navajo ply this one – all of it. *gulp*
Probably some plain fingerless mittens, what do you think?
I’ll aim to spin it fine enough that a 3ply comes up around DK weight.
Stop giggling! I can try.
Or I could 2ply and aim for a fingering weight and make these mittens – but I do think that this yarn would be better chain plyed or it will become a real mishmash.
