I have successfully knit the heel flap, picked up the gusset stitches, and started working in the round again. I do have to say that I really like the look of the traditional heel flap and gusset.
Why haven’t I finished this one sock yet? Because of work, yes, and also because I received my booty from Aija’s blog contest a while back. I’ve been reading The Friday Night Knitting Club. It’s enjoyable in a very chick lit lite kind of way. I do care about the characters, but it’s clichéd and if I have to read one more time about someone tossing her brown curls, I might scream. And then go read some more. It has the feeling of being written to be turned into a movie.
Aija also sent along one of her stitchmarkers, a pretty brown and pink pearl combination, which happened to coordinate perfectly with my Easter outfit. Yes, I wore it as a necklace. I just wish I had a couple more for matching earrings!
