I finished my quick cowl the other day and put it to immediate use.
I did work on heels yesterday. I thought about all those worn ones in my drawer too. With the worn heels in mind and a rather large skein of black yarn left to work with, i decided to double up the yarn and knit a really sturdy tightly knit heel, in the hopes that I will get a longer life out of it.
I've also had better luck for a longer heel life with a garter stitch heel, so that came into play as well. A good sturdy garter stitch heel. Lookin good. The floor here and in my next abode are not carpet so that should help a great deal, but no point in taking a chance. Good sturdy heels are my best hope.
That is for me today. More heels are in the immediate forecast, and from the chill coming in the window, I would say this is a good thing.
