Second pair started, first finished. CO: 20080702 BO: 20080714 Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Cotton Top Color 2.5mm needles I'm not sure why these took so long. The foot is about two rows too short but otherwise they're perfect. the cuff is only about 6cm from my ankle bone. It had been a while since I'd done short row heels and i forgot how they made everything shorter. I still have lots of yarn leftover .. *sigh*

back is done. the conductor on my train tonight said it "looked good" and i laughed at him and he smiled and admitted "ok it looks longer". :) wonder what he'll think tomorrow when i cast on the front(s)? ;) i love how lace looks lumpy and icky until it's blocked. i love the colourway, still unsure of my silly choice of using a sticky single ply for this sweater. oh well. made this bed, must lie in it.

Now that I have shorter needles, the sleeve is progressing much faster. The only question is how long I should make it!
