No Cinderella Here
So SL number 1 is finished ... well, kind of. It barely fits over my heel. I don't have huge feet -- size 8. This is my first sock and I must have just knitted it way too tightly. What do I do, oh sock gurus? I tried it on before I finished and it was snug but not excruciatingly tight. I think I pinned down the cuff for the picot edging wrong or something. Anyway, I'm not happy with the fit. Maybe I should just redo the cuff? Suggestions?
The bag is also done -- and I love it! I think the handles worked out okay -- I had to unravel a swatch to get enough of the heather yarn and then I used white for the rest. I've been calling it white, but it's the natural wool, not bleached, which is why it felted without a problem. This will become my new bag for my knitting. Yipee!
