Just past the contrasting cuff on the second sock. That's exactly where I want to be since I'm getting on an airplane tomorrow and think this will make for some fine travel knitting. Pattern: Strie (modified) by @laraneel in #SockArchitecture Heel: #🐠👄😚👠 by @soxtherapist Yarn: Bounce and Stomp in Blue Box Exploding by @nerdgirlyarns Needles: US1 #Karbonz by @knitterpride Yarn bowl: @theyarnit Backdrop: a cheap towel from Target #FishLipsKissHeel #knitting #knittersofinstagram #UnravelingPodcast
…..and, scene! I can tidy up the join point when I weave in the ends. Stealing from the cast-on tail for the last 6 stitches of the bind off (where there were with both yarns) worked just fine. I'll call this a #YarnChicken draw. I won't claim it as a win, but I was certainly not defeated! #UnravelingPodcast
