Archive for April 5th, 2019

I want to share a video I found that is extremely helpful in dealing with mistakes in lace knitting. It’s by JenACKnitwear and it shows how to fix a mistake without ripping out rows and rows of knitting. It really is worth the look.

In the meantime I have been working on the Infernal Socks and have just ended the gusset portion and begun the foot. Please let it be over soon.

In other news, Yarn Rascal has embraced corriedale yarn. Up to last week he wanted nothing to do with corriedale and heaven forbid a ball of corriedale got mixed in with his collection of merino. Since the sock stealing episode his opinion of corriedale seems to have changed. Last night he moved the left over corriedale yarn I had in my bin to his bin of merino. Corriedale is a cross breed of Lincoln Long Wool and Merino sheep. It is longer wearing than merino yet still soft enough for next to skin wear. It is absolutely great for socks as it doesn’t pill and wear out as fast as merino.

In addition to knitting the Infernal Socks I have been spinning my corriedale fiber on my Tibetan Spindle. It took a bit to understand what the yarn wanted versus what I thought I wanted. Once I listened to the yarn the spinning has been going great. I am quite pleased with it.

Hopefully by the next post I will have a picture of the completed Infernal Socks. Please let this be true.
