This week I have been concentrating on the Villemokalebsdotter by Yarnesty which is being knitted in leftover yarn from the previous socks. Yarnesty can be found on utube as Anna has a video podcast ans also on Instagram. Her may designs can be found on Ravelry too. This pattern peeked my attention as the construction of the heel was new. I can recommend trying other heel constructions just to get out of automatic knitting techniques that seem to happen unconsciously too.
There I was happily knitting away and having completed the heel it looked different. Looking at the photos it finally twigged that I had made the decreases in the wrong place and it looked odd. ( little tip, always read the pattern).
No matter how long you have been knitting, a mistake is always humbling. I felt like throwing it in the corner and having a proper tantrum but after a cup of tea and reassuring myself it was not really a big deal, I patiently tinked it and Reknit part of it. Surely enough, I still love it.
