So, this project was going well, with the cables proving easier than they first appeared and things flying along quite nicely. The wool was wonderful, buttery soft and thick, and there I was knitting away like a wild thing to produce two thick aran socks of wintry warmth. Hoorah!
Anyone guess what really happened? Um...
No, the heels were fine, I didn't mess those up, or wear them out in my sleep as before... It was something else...
Yes, I ran out of wool.
I quite like the oddness. I could start a trend.
