Oh Boy!

The excitement never ends around here. Yet another new sock.




Charis says, "What the ....???"







The sock interacts with Charis. Kindly disregard the pasty white leg attached to the sock. The owner of the leg wishes to inform all viewers that the leg is actually a deep and sultry shade of tan in real life.

Frosty wishes to inform viewers that in real life he is a large and manly dog of herculean proportions, and not the shrimp-like creature he appears in this photo.

Sock #2 is going to be tricky. This sock's shaping is based on Knitty's Widdershins, but I added a bunch of short rows before the heel flap shaping and used a different number of stitches to accommodate the simple stitch pattern I substituted. And I did something different on the gusset decreases too....

Your socks are loverly. Great work and color. Will look great with jeans.

Thank you, but so far it's just ONE sock. I have to figure out what-all I did, write a few notes, then get the second one started.

I would do this pattern after you get it figured out. Next you will have to try two socks at once. BTW, I was not aware that you could be a deep sultry tan, I've only seen you bright red or pale white - like a canadian flag - coincidence???

How do you know that's my leg though? Bahahahaha!
