An FO! And a Turned Heel

Posted by mtmom on June 19, 2009

I finished the scarf in Twisted Fiber Art “Duchess” DK-weight yarn, colorway “Rodney”, and gave it to Julie (the woman who taught me to knit) for her church Craft Sale.

She was delighted!  I always enjoy getting to visit with Julie.  This time we talked about the (apparently dozens of) Ring-necked Doves that moved into our neighborhood this last year; a pair of them come often to my millet feeder and I see them perched atop our streetlamps.  She says they came here from Kuwait by way of Los Angeles, blown in by a storm, and managed to survive the winter.

Yesterday, I turned the heel on Robert‘s second sock and resumed in-the-round knitting.

Now, to check which round begins the ribbing. . . .  Gotta match sock #1, and both gotta fit!

    The scarf turned out wonderful. I love how the repeats worked perfectly!

    That scarf will sure go fast, what a generous gesture on your part. The kilt sock is really starting to take shape. Thank you for the advice on the sock yarn.
