The Yarnarian Publishes a Sock Pattern! Finally!

Do you remember the pattern, Eve's Temptation? AKA the heel from hell pattern? As soon as the Hubbo turns it into a pdf file, I'm putting it on Ravelry. With one tiny addition: instructions for a normal heel if the h from h is too much to deal with. It's such a pretty sock, and I'd hate for anyone not to knit it because of that h from h! Remember this?

Knitting News: I'm working on the February Lady Sweater, and am enjoying it immensely. I can work on worsted weight yarn if the needles are not too big. I knit very loosely, so that's not a problem. The pattern calls for size 8 and a gauge of 4.5 sts/inch. I went down to a size 6, and it's all working out just fine. Here's a pic, like you can tell what it looks like. At least you can see the color. I'm using Cascade 220 in a blend of cream, yellow and pink, which looks like orange when twisted together. Half of the Ravelry universe is into an orange phase, so I thought I'd join them. Besides, I look good in OJ.

Jen and Bev - I thought it was a pretty neat heel, but my 2 ver experienced testers thought it was the heel from hell. Others found it not too difficult. So that's why the option. I like the way it fits me in particular. And good for clog season.

I love that sock! I have not been in a sock knitting mood lately, but when I am I know what I am going to knit. I might even try the h from h! :)

Ruth I love the new sock and I love short row heels. I have learned several different ways to knit them and I like doing them that way now.
