Fuzzy Feet Revisited
So this time around I experimented a little. The first two tries resulted in a bit of frogging, but the third time was the charm. Instead of doing the K2TOG and immediately turning, I wrapped the yarn around the next stitch and slipped it back onto the right hand needle after the turn. When I came to the decrease again, the gap between stitches had shifted one stitch to the left of the wrapped stitch. I knit the last stitch of the heel with the wrapped stitch (I didn't bother picking up the wrap)and wrapped the next stitch across the gap. The result was a much tighter "seam" along the turn that I'm much happier with.
Other than that excitement, I dug through a couple baskets where I'd stored knitting stuff a few years back along with the drawer in a sewing stand where I keep most of my straight knitting needles. The result of maybe a half hour of activity: a half dozen knit cotton dishcloths found along with 5 of my missing yarn needles, some point protectors and the "custom made by" labels I was looking for a couple months ago. I also found a set of size 3 double points - one of the old four to a set Boye aluminum kind, but along with the baby yarn I discovered, I may be able to try knitting a pair of socks without having to put out any $$$.
