In a recent post I told of my plan to boil down some leftover dyebath into a stronger form. Yeah, well. The bubbles are actually the stainless steel finish. Lesson learned: Gosh, I hope so.

The socks look very cozy.

But the dye pot! EEP. Did you forget and let it boil dry? Or is that just what kool-aid does to stainless steel?

I love your no-pattern socks. How does the short-row heel feel?

Eliz. I did forget it and it boiled dry. It was the Monday night Packer game. I guess my fan credentials are now in order, if not my olfactory organs.

Sue. The short row heel feels fine. I did have to do some sewing up of holes at the usual spot on either side.

Did you stink up the house? That's just awful :(

You are right Eryn. There is nothing quite like the smell of smelting. A smell with which I have some familiarity from my childhood. Don't ask. It dissipated pretty quickly as smells go.
