...until I get to the heel flap. That's not bad in my book. I estimated that I knit 7-8 inches on each stocking over the weekend. If I knit some tonight I will easily be at the heel flap.
I looked at some silk yarn for stockings last evening. I'm considering the Halcyon Pearl Silk 2/5 in natural (it only comes in natural) for two silk stockings that I was asked about over the weekend. It's a sport weight so I could probably get the proper gauge for the pattern on 1's or 2's. I'm not sure if I would need one large cone for each pair, or if one large cone would complete both. Still need to contimplate that. I'm hoping to view some samples on Wednesday.
