While watching the Academy Awards last night, I was working on the heel of my Marble Arches sock, part of last season's Socks that Rock Club. I knew I might be in trouble as I read the heel directions, which kept saying CONCENTRATE and FOCUS in capital letters! I got somewhat bogged down in their directions to YOK and YOP, and decided I would give up and do a basic heel from Knitting Vintage Socks. But after getting my kids to sleep and knowing that there were several more hours of Oscars to watch, I decided to rip out and try the pattern's heel again. This time, I got the rhythm and feel of the pattern and the heel turned out beautiful!
Earlier today, I had been talking ot a knitting group friend about how I really want to learn to crochet so I can do finishing on my knitted items that call for crochet edging or seaming. I told her I hated not knowing how to do something that I feel I am capable of (like crochet) and she said she could tell that I was like that....I can't tell you how gratifying it is for me to look at that pretty heel. I feel like I won an Award!
