It's hard not to notice that a sock really does take on some unfortunate silhouettes as it morphs it's way to completion. My son got home last night just as I finished my heel turn, and he gave me a rather strange look when he saw "what" I was making. Not to worry . . . I explained everything to him!!
Oooh, and I got a new sock knitting book yesterday. Since a couple of you had recommended it, I went ahead and ordered Sensational Socks. You were SO right, it is an excellent resource for sock knitting. I couldn't put it down. The way it's written and her attention to detail explanations answer so many questions I've been pondering. Now I'm thinking about my NEXT pair. . . . but I better do some gusseting first. . . .
