The sock flew along with much more pleasure when I used plain knitting.
I tried the gusset heel-no wrap and turns either for the heel.
I liked the results and the fit but will have to tweak the heel placement line on my cardboard form!
I did have to rip out and try again once. This yarn is a bit heavier than the pattern I was trying so the row gauge was off and the first try made the sock too long.
(It might've gone to my daughter! lol)
I hope to nail it with no repeats on the second one.
I am working on the k2p2 rib for the leg now-I'm not sure how high I will make it yet.
On the way to the beach with friends today,
we passed the newly cut hay field and they had it all baled!
It looked very Fall even if the temperatures didn't reflect that at all!
We went to Corky Bell's on the St Johns River.
It was a wonderful time to catch up.
We had a great meal at our fav restaurant and they headed to St Augustine Pier.
The tide was just going out so there were tons of shells to sort through
and we walked up and down the beach.
So nice to share a day!
When I got back home, a nice KnitPicks pkg was waiting for me!
This is a treat for me-one of their wooden bowls for knitters!
It is superb! Don't hesitate to treat yourself to one!
I haven't shown this in a while; I finished the top row last night.
It is so relaxing to knit on it one block at a time....
