You work the sock like a tube. Where the heel will go, you knit a row with waste yarn (white- right side of photo). When you're ready to go back and work the heel, you VERY carefully, remove the waste yarn to expose live stitches, and insert the needles. Then you work the heel (left side of photo). It's pretty easy, as long as you don't mind picking up the stitches when you remove the waste yarn. And you have to kitchner stitch the end of the heel. I like doing the kitchner stitch, so that was fun for me.
I started a new knitting project, but I'll only work on it when I'm riding in the car. My main project for the next few months is a wedding quilt for my son and his intended.
I'm (deep breath) making them a king size double wedding ring quilt. The wedding is in December. If I fall behind- cheer me on, please!
The wedding colors are white, black and red. It should be a beautiful winter wedding! Here's the beginning of my pile of fabrics. I'm collecting everything black and white and red that I can get my hands on!
Here's the exciting part!!!!!! Even as we speak.... the men in brown (UPS) are transporting my new Accuquilt GO! to me! Along with the cutting machine, I will be receiving several die sets- one of which is a double wedding ring! Yea! No cutting all those little pieces with templates! I'll be showing the GO! cutting system to you as I learn to use it..
And I have a little (make that a BIG) surprise for you. The October giveaway will be...... shhhh.... it's a SURPRISE!
