Here's a pretty well-turned heel, I think, and the gusset that I finished last night.  Now I'll just be knitting the foot 'til it's time to shape the toe.  Woo.

Dsc00963The sock is written for five needles, but I've only got a set of four in that size, so I'm making do.  So far, so good.  I would like to try this on pretty soon, though, and I've got to remember to do that half-way through the "lace needle" -- I think it would be accomplished easier with all four needles in the work.

Yesterday was my second and last day of work this week.  This morning, I'm running around with Ai to settle some school stuff and buy books; this afternoon, registration for Mdd -- high school registration.  This evening, I have book club, and in between all that, I'll be packing up my car in preparation for another northern run -- this time in a more westerly direction.  Yes, folks, it's that time again -- Rummage-O-Rama at my sister's!

Dsc00768I am likely to see lots of this on the way.  This is one of my favorite things to see in the whole wide world.  I can't even explain what I feel when I see hay balls strewn across a field -- there's a calm and sense of random order, accomplishment, a feeling that all is right.  Kt was kind enough to snap this for me last weekend.  There had been a good rain a few days earlier, too, so fields looked quite lush.

I plan to leave plenty early tomorrow morning and intend to do a little yarn crawling -- Yellow Dog Knitting in Eau Claire, for sure, and hopefully one or two more.  I'm going to try to cook up some posts to keep you entertained while I'm away -- I may or may not be able to get on a computer.  In any event, I'll be back with regularly scheduled programming (and probably the start of Sock #2!) on Monday!



I really, really love that sock. Perfect pattern and color match. Really. Have fun this weekend.


Very pretty sock, very pretty pattern. That's a beautiful table, too.


The sock is beautiful! Who would know you've only knit one pair!!

Vicki! Thank you so very much for the package. I got it yesterday and can't stop smiling. Thank you, thank you!!!


Nice heel and gusset! You've been making socks your whole life and just not telling us, right?


I knew you'd be a genius at socks - what's the pattern your using?

Have a great trip!

That's one smart heel! Great job. Happy trails.


Very nice!
