I don't know why I don't knit socks more often. I love turning heels! It's so spiffy... There you are, knitting along in one plane and then, hey presto!, suddenly your knitting has turned a right angle and you're off perpendicular to where you were before!
Yes, I've picked up the poor neglected sock that I started...oh, last year sometime. And I've turned the heel on it. Now I have to decide if I want to keep using the subtle pattern that's on the cuff all the way down the front of the sock, something that will require a moderate Use of Brain, or whether I'll take the lazy way out and just make the whole foot portion stockinette.
I really should have been seaming up Toby's sweater, but I pulled it out today at lunch to work on it and realized that I had promised a picture a couple of days ago and I hadn't yet taken it and I needed to do so before seaming. Not to worry...this will all become clear when I get home, take, and post the picture.
See, there I was in the office, wanting to start seaming but I had no safety pins! No seam holders thingies! Man is, however, a tool-maker, right? So yes...those are binder clips holding my knitting together.
And now, just for some pretty - here's the geranium I bought this weekend for my front porch. Isn't he purty?
