So I've been working on my Fuzzy Foot for the Fuzzy FeetAlong. Yes you can see I've progressed quite far. The instructions call for circular needles. That's just not going to work for me. I'll switch over to dpn's tomorrow. I'm still loving the color though. It's called Orchid Thistle.
I've also been working on two socks using the Almost Argyle pattern from KnitPicks. Another bad thing. I'm not sure why it's not working out. I mean, you should be able to see the diamond argyle pattern, right? Unfortunately it's really hard to see. I'm not sure if it's because I knit too lose and the edges aren't defined or if it's the color. Maybe the gray isn't solid enough (it's a bit heathered) or is too dark?
The heel flap is a pattern of K1, Sl1 that makes a pretty yet thick fabric, much better than the usual straight knit. And perfect for an area that experiences heavy wear.
Anyway, I'm going to finish these up and try again with either smaller needles (depending on how big these turn out) or a lighter color. Any suggestions as to why the pattern is hidden?
I guess the dark color was perfect for my mood today.
