painterly skies

I've had a mad dashing-about-kind-of-day, chasing my tail all the way.

A quick snap of the amazing light as I crossed from one coast to the other over the moor. It's true what everyone says, the light in Cornwall has a special quality.



So I must get back to those socks. Time to turn the heel. I was wondering, has anyone knitted socks with 'afterthought heels'? It looks like it could be worth trying sometime (but not this time, not when the pressure's on).

I think it's time for a list. And a little more focus on all things festive.

The light is amazing here isn't it? I can't believe how quickly you have knitted those Diana! Well done for getting to the heel already and what is an sfterthought heel? I have finished the beret and am fairly pleased with it - very quick knit but hard to judge on my pinhead! xx
