Fighting the blahs

Those winter blahs can knock the knitting spunk right outta a girl. Which is not exactly a good thing when she's decided to knit Christmas presents. In an attempt to reconnect with my knitting mojo, I finished these:

Twisted Fiber Arts Duchess in Octarine with eye of the partridge heel and round toe. I tried eye of the partridge on the toe, but I'm not happy with the results. The decreases for the round toe interfered with the stitch pattern. Live and learn.

And now, it's back to black popovers and navy mittens.

Love Twisted, Love Meg's dyework! :) Check out the color and the stripes! I've heard that she now sells in both yarn stores (Threadbear, for sure) and her etsy store.

Hrm. Starting to realize that my "round toe" is completely different than the rest of the kniting world-- or at least Nancy Bush's concept of them. :)

Quite possibly. I haven't looked closely at Nancy Bush's round toe. This is Charlene S's version from More Sensational Socks. She did the math for me.
