Something Like Magic

Every time I finish an object, no matter how big or small, I am still impressed with myself.  Sounds a little arrogant maybe, but I took some yarn, needles and a set of instructions and worked them it to the end.  Not bad for a lady who can barely count past 59 without some minor inconvenience, and in spite of the fact that I am math challenged in something as simple as consecutive numbers, I finished.

Pattern: Caffe Macchiato
Yarn: Vesper Superwash
Needles: Karbonz, US #1

I used the Fish Kiss Lips Heel (cost for that part of the pattern was US $1) which I think has finally sunk in. With no counting, flaps or gaps - well, I did have a gap because I didn't quite get it the first time around - the instructions are easy to understand and there are YouTube tutorials for folks like me who are visual.  The instructions for a 'regular' heel are included for free with the pattern, so it's your choice.

The socks mostly match, I was off by a couple of rows at the top and again at the heel, but who cares about the part that goes in my shoe?

So now I've got to wait for some inspiration to hit me while I'm winterizing the house.  The nights are cold, the flowers are all closing down for winter and I should have raked some leaves while I was outside taking pictures of my feet.

Next post will be about my Rhinebeck purchases.  The weather was beautiful!


  1. I love it! and I believe it's okay to be arrogant. Your hands are gifted.
