on a new sock. Tesserae Pattern, which I've done a few times before.
It is basically ribbing. My favorite...NOT... but I like the effect.
Yarn is Lorna Laces 80% Merino / 20 % nylon.
I have a thing for different colored heels and/or toes lately.
When I did this heel, I left a long string and worked back thru
the purl stitches on the inside of the heel. usually I do this
when I'm all done...I can't believe I thought of it now. LOL
Ruth and I went to the Finger Lakes Fiber Fest yesterday.
It was nice. they added a nice new bldg, so some of the vendors
were inside now, and the aisles were larger.
I got this nice sunny yellow yarn for the Through The Loops
Mystery Sock this winter. I always use this yarn. It is so soft.
70% merino/30% nylon. At 5.50 a skein you can't go wrong!
And some other merino for a shawl at some point.
Ruth finished up her first sock, and I'm so sorry but don't have
details. I know she sent them...at some point. I even looked back
thru older posts and could not find info. It is a different heel.
I think it looks really nice, don't you! I love the stripes!
Martha is working away on her Lilli Pilli shawl. She was a little
hesitant about using the varigated yarn, but now that she's further
along she likes it. I like it too! She is going to do a little more lace
than the pattern calls for to use up the yarn.
In other news...well there is not much to report.
Our friend George went goose hunting today and caught
quite a few. He gave them ALL to Joe to clean and cook and
