On a few women in history, women who are close to me.
So I had to do some …interesting… things to adjust the heel to two-at-a-time magic loop. Should probably write up.
10/27: getting a little nervous that I’m going to run out of yarn!
11/2: ran out of the Najad, knit in the leftover blue Cascade 200. quite possibly going to run out of that as well, I think I have some Lion something or other in tan if so. (started the toes, though.)
11/3 – managed to finish the toes in the blue! still have to weave in ends & block.

Being a short story.
Also used up a bunch of Plymouth Encore Chunky. Other pieces made by Susan & Bridget.
Another poem about going to the beach in early fall.
Walking up from the beach
Dead relatives and web stuff.
Trying to get over perfectionism, a fixed mindset, and having been a “smart kid,” all by being terrible at things.
Got slightly off on the short rows, probably very early on when I was still figuring out how they worked.
Not quite enough of the yarn to finish, but I like the gist of the project so I might buy some. note: used same style in a different color.
9/9 – restarted. 75 St remaining.
9/11- may have decreased one too many, so I increased back again in the final purl row.
Very cosy. I’m pleased, it’ll be nice when we have cold weather. Interesting effect with the heathered green & the tweedy black.
Update, November 2014: OMG this is amazing in cold weather. A++++ would knit again.
