Here is the first of the cabled socks in alpaca...I continue to love the color and the feel. I decided to make the sock for my little fat Hungarian feet. I made a round toe and when 24 stitched were left, I divided them and did a 3 needle bind off. This allows for my wider with feet. I am not certain is looks good when it isn't being worn....that is why I didnt show you that part....
I am not sure about it. I may frog it....
This frugal Hungarian felt pretty miffed the last time I sent a flat rate box for 4.95 at the post office. The USPS beat me. It would have been cheaper to send it in another way. THe postal woman clerk tried to tell me that I should think of it otherwise because I didn't have to pay for the box. Still not happy, I decided to beat it bigtime.
Im sending a package to a friend who reads this blog, and it is tiny and heavy.....Here's hoping I beat the system this time.
I'll letcha know!
(Cricket is such a treat. Im walking again! My back does feel really good this week? Cooincidence? We'll see)
