Still lost...

Yup - still no camera. I'm not super worried - last time I used it I was in the house so it can't have gotten far. Besides I have total faith in St. Anthony - it will show up sooner or later.

In the meantime however I can't show you my new socks. Actually they aren't really new - I started them back in the summer, got to the heel and stopped. I just didn't feel like doing a heel flap and gussett. This week I had the bright idea to try a short row heel cuz I STILL didn't feel like doing the heel flap and gusset. I looked up a plan on the internet and started doing a short row with wraps. I've done this before and I felt pretty confidant that I could pull it off.

That confedence bites me in the ass everytime! My short row heel looks like crap. Where I picked up the wraps on the purl side looks ok but the knit side - yuck. Are you supposed to do it different? It doesn't matter - I'm pulling it out as soon as I'm done here. It just looks to bad to live. I'll be trying the yarn over short row method next it sounds much easier.

For the people that just come for the pictures.
I took this picture a few weeks ago - it's actually a finished object now. It's an Odessa for my SIL. I think this is the first thing I've ever done that was true black - it could also be the last. Black is a pain in the ass! You can hardly see the stitches and it's not very photo friendly. It does look fabulous finished though. It turned out really well - I just hope it fits right. It's a little too small for me - but I have a big head so I dunno. I didn't weave in the end so I can rip it if need be.

I love the Odessa!
