Double the Fun Heel Flap

heelflapDblyarn (6)
This is the Newland Picons, and one of the things that I decided to to different this time is to use some extra yarn that was included with this skein to reinforce the heel and the toe.  I am using two strands to make the heel flap and I will turn the heel with the two of them as well.  I don't know if I will be doing the toe in the same manner just yet. This is one of those times that I can tell you that the signature needles have made a big difference as they are very strong and the yarn does not fall off.  These needles are worth their money and I can see myself getting another set of dpns  US 1.

None the less here is some crochet, is Tapestry Crochet as I am working on creating the Pattern for one of the Philosopher's hats that I have created in the past.  This is the reversed side, I don't want anyone to steal the pattern lol! I will put the hat down for a bit and allow myself to get some more inspiration as I tackle the making of the pattern once more.  This pattern will be a bit modified from the original, most of the patterns that I recreate are, but it is for the better.  Well a bit of crochet and a bit of knitting and some pattern design, This is going to be an interesting 4th of July weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!
