On The Needles


I'm not having much success with the pooling of my sock yarns.  Prince Henry-on the left-is showing just a teeny tiny bit of pooling, Sweet Georgia, not so much.  I wonder what kind of results I would have if I weren't wanting the yarn to pool.

There was a bit of a mishap with Sweet Georgia. Someone forgot to turn the heel before she started the gusset.  (Shakes head and sighs!) So that brought about some needle pulling and picking up of stitches.  Now someone needs to get her book out and read up on heel turning before she goes any farther.  She will probably do that today.v

What's on your needles?  See other fabulous needle projects at Patchwork Times.

And just for the fun of it, here is Mae modeling her sweater.

I love Mae's sweater and it looks like it's big enough that it will fit her next year too. My guess is that many sock knitters have forgotten to turn the heel at least once! I'm also guessing that if you didn't want that yarn to pool, it would be pooling! Hope the other one pools for you.

Yours is pooling more than mine is! I LOVE that sweater; what a cute little model. Perfect colors also!

If "a watched pot never boils," does that mean "a watched yarn never pools"? Its a ponderable.

The sweater is just as cute as Mae!

I just hate it when I start the gusset before I do that little cup on the sock heel. It happens fairly frequently to me.

Sweet child! I am nervous about starting my first socks...
