Playing Catch-Up ...

Well, I finally got some pictures taken of some of the socks I knit ..

This is the Fidalgo Feet sock pattern knit up in Opal Uni-Solids #18. Unfortunately ... I only have one of the socks finished. The other one is half-way there ... but I knit these with a heel flap to carry the pattern down the heel ... and I HATE knitting heel flaps and picking up gusset stitches! I want new socks to wear, though ... so one day soon, I need to just finish the mate.

This is one of the pair I knit for my daughter. The pattern is Cascading Leaves from the Townsend Socks Knitalong ... Love this pattern! The yarn is some that I received in a bottle swap, and it was Kool-Aid dyed.

I know that these pics aren't great ... but I'm trying to just get back into posting again ...

And ... I have a confession to make ... I finally broke down and ordered some Woolie the Ram sock blockers from Chappy ... I had been wanting some for sooooo long! I hope to get them sometime this week ... Then I may have to do sock picture retakes ...
