Cyfrgoll


Cyfrgoll is a Welsh word meaning damnation, loss, or perdition.

I was really humming along, having turned the Welsh heel last night. And then, while picking up the stitches on the heel flap, I felt a strange slackness. As the picture shows, I had somehow missed one of the selvedge edge stitches on the way up the heel flap, and the whole thing started coming loose. Two evening's worth of work down the tubes.

On the upside, I'll get to practice the Welsh heel again. It's a really cool way to do a heel -- it looks almost completely rounded, like a little cup. I have to admit that the fault lies solely with me. What I can't figure out is why it didn't start unraveling earlier.

Cyfrgoll!
