Finished the Beachy Felicis today! These were a quick knit with only 48 stitches around and speedy stockinette. A short row heel probably would have been more attractive with the striping yarn, but I don’t have that construction memorized and I didn’t have notes with me. These are done – and I only used 1 ball of yarn (so I have a spare).
I’ve been spinning the Polworth top on my spindle. I know that seeing singles pile up on a spindle isn’t super exciting, but here’s how it looks now: I started a pair of socks with Jacob sock yarn, which is a little thicker than fingering. I’m using 2.25 mm needles. The stitch pattern is a 10-stitch repeat and the cast-on number is 60 – but this thick yarn made the sock too big so I backed down to 50. We’ll see how this works out. Today Boy 1 and I climbed the tallest brick lighthouse in the world – Hatteras Island Lighthouse. It’s 12 stories tall. Great view at the top!One last shot of Beachy Felici (I just like saying that):
