You may remember my
ill thought through plan to knit a pair of socks in a weekend. You may remember that when my plan failed didn’t succeed, I assigned it to being my handbag knitting. Not having had many occasions to pull it out of my handbag meant that by the time I went to Winchester Writer’s Festival last week, I’d still only knitted this much of the second sock…
But as Lovely Husband was following on behind with my holiday luggage the day after, it was the perfect project to take on the train.
The journey to Winchester and the car journey to London on the Sunday were just enough to get the leg finished. The journey out of London on the Monday was too twisty to focus on the heel turn, but once we were on the motorway, I pulled out the sock.
Unfortunately I was working from two patterns at once.
Both patterns used a round of 64 stitches. Both patterns had a short row heel turn. But the number of stitches inside the decreases was different for each. Had I brought the first sock with me?
Could I remember which heel turn I’d followed?
Could I heck!
Of course a silly little thing like that wasn’t going to stop me. So I guessed.
The heel turn was complete by the time we reached the hotel near Ross on Wye. The remainder of the sock knitted on our journeys around Herefordshire and on the way home. The toe was sewn up with Kitchener stich once I got home.
Eldest daughter talked me into giving these to her before I even got half way down the first leg, so she’s going to have to tell me how much ifference the two different heels are making.
That’s me now all caught up with sharing my holiday knitting.
Have a fabulous weekend!
