On the third day of Cat Bordhi classes, we did Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel. I first learned of this heel last fall when I went to Rhinebeck. Geneviève (aka TurtlePurl) was pretty much a Sweet Tomato Heel evangelist. I finally got the e-book this year but hadn’t done anything beyond reading it.
Once I saw the socks that my friend Kirsti knit in this colourway I had to knit it myself. I have made good progress on this sock today, and I think it’s quite possible for me to actually finish a pair of socks in a reasonable amount of time. That doesn’t mean it’ll happen.
Here’s yesterday’s cowl on Mary Pat. It looked so good on her once she tried it on that I decided that it had to be hers. I loved the process of spinning & the way the colours looked, but they never were *my* colours. I guess I was making it for her all along!
