On the Needles

class sock=heel started
Here is class sock #1 with the heel started.  The heel wasn’t part of the homework for the week but I went asked if I could have the directions for starting it so I would be ready to have her help me with the gusset, the part I got stopped on when I was doing it by myself.  And, because I got this part done, I started on the second sock, too.  I am hoping that I will be able to have both of these socks done by the end of the lessons, in 1 week.

tube sock #2
Additionally, I am getting very close to having my second tube sock done.  I only have about 2” to do on the tube and then the toe, which was very easy on the first sock.  These are a little heavier and will be great when it starts to get cooler (I wear sandals all year).  I have some of this yarn left so am thinking of combining it with a heavier white/cream yarn for a hat. 

I have also had some success at working on quilting projects and will show them off on Monday.

Have a grate weekend, everybody!  Gari

Progress, how did you get on with the heel in the end? It's quite easy once you know how isn't it?
I love the yarns you are using, so bright and cheerful.

Look at you go! I love both socks. I started to giggle when you said you wear sandals and then said you had yarn left over. A vision of Gari wearing sandal socks popped right into my head. :)
You are making me want to pick up my socks and work on them but I have to many other things going on right now.
Keep up the great work!!

Love that top yarn ... It stripes so well. It's always fun to see how a self striping yarn actually looks. I agree, I want to whip out my socks and knit... Um, maybe tomorrow.

Wow, lots of progress on the knitting. Love the colors you are using for both sets of socks.
