The heel flap is being made on the Jeck socks. I think this might me my new favorite pattern. I was happily knitting along last night when I came to the dreaded knot in the yarn! Ugh! I wanted to continue to match my pattern. I pulled and pulled and pulled and didn't find the repeat. I gave up before I had a huge mess in my lap and retied it and kept knitting. My heels will be different colors and that will make these socks even more fun.
I have to hurry and get them finished though because the Socktoberfest 2012 Opal Challenge will start soon and I caved and bought some Opal yarn from Simply Socks Yarn Company. And because my wonderful, dear, sweet friend sent me a surprise package of Opal--and she made me cry! So how can I not play along by committing to 2 pair for the month. I need socks for September and October!!!! Oh my, the pressure..............
The May socks are coming along nicely. I spent some recliner time on them to get through the heel and gusset and then put them back in my bag. I've held down the passenger seat a few times this week and had more time to work on these. I must be getting faster or I'm spending more time knitting than I realize. That's not such a bad thing, is it???
