I wish I could sew really well. . .
I am totally in love with the Amy Butler weekender bag that Rebecca showed on her blog poshyarn
last week. The fabric is just gorgeous and I love the form of the bag.
But to more knit-related stuff:
I read on Audrey's blog that she had difficulties understanding my description of the short row heel. Therefore, I had my husband take a few photos while I knitted the heel:
I hope you can see what I tried to describe like this:
sryo: sl st to right hand needle with yarn in front, then pull yarn to back of work over the needle – st looks now as if there are two sts. This sryo double stitch is always knit/purled together as one st.
the short row heel is worked over half of your total stitches. You knit that half of your stitches. Turn, make a sryo as described above. Put sryo onto spare needle. P to the end of row. Turn, make a sryo as described above. Put sryo onto spare needle. *K to end of row, turn, make a sryo, put sryo onto spare needle, p to the end of row, turn, make a sryo, put sryo onto spare needle.* Repeat * to * until 1/3 of total heel sts are left on main needle. Work 1 rnd over all sts. K across sts on main needle, k1 from spare needle,*turn, sryo, p across main needle, p1 from spare needle, turn, sryo, *k sts of main needle including sryo st (double st worked as one), k1 from spare needle, turn, sryo, p across main needle, p sryo double st as one, p1 from spare needle, turn, sryo,*. Repeat * to * until all sts from spare needles have been worked. You should now have as many stitches as you cast on!
is the German pattern from which I learned the short row heel. (Different photos)
Habt Ihr die Amy Butler Tasche bei poshyarn
letzte Woche gesehen? Ich bin total verliebt in die Tasche, die Form und die Stoffe gefallen mir phantastisch. Ich wünschte, ich könnte besser nähen und hätte die Muse dazu.
Bei Audrey habe ich gelesen, dass sie mit meiner Beschreibung der Ferse mit verkürzten Reihen Probleme hatte, deshalb habe ich die Fotos gemacht und hoffe, dass hilft.
Für alle deutschen Leser, die die Ferse noch nicht kennen, gibt es
die Anleitung, nach der ich diesen Fersentyp gelernt habe.
