Sweet Tomatoes and Silver Linings

Some of my Goals for 2013 are struggling along a little, but number 8, to knit 6 pairs of socks has gone so well that I think I will revert to my optimistic goal of knitting 13 pairs this year (one of which to be with handspun).

For pair 6 I wanted to try out the Sweet Tomato Heel by Cat Bordhi.

Supply gathering began ... some yarn from the stash which must be nearly 10 years old, my trusty 2.5mm ChiaoGoo's and a new book

The heel was a pleasure to work, no counting and I love how it stripes the yarn differently, definitely one I'll knit again.

This yarn was supposed to make Zebra socks as you can see it very much did not anywhere but the heel!! Quite baffling!

I'm thoroughly enjoying the book, have you read it? The film is out on DVD soon so I wanted to read the book before watching it.

What are you reading at the moment? Ooh and have you tried the Sweet Tomato Heel?
