looking forward


Finished the heel flap, turned the heel, worked the gusset and made my way well into the main part of the foot. Barring anything unexpected, I should finish my second Glynis sock. And not a minute too soon - my fingers are feeling sore and burnt from the tough and ropey texture of the wool. I'm definitely regretting that I didn't wash this wool before casting on. After I washed my swatch it softened up nicely. But unwashed it's really unpleasant to knit. Oh well, soon enough I'll be casting on heathery greens and blues in Briggs & Little yarn for Tabitha's slipper socks. Maybe even get them done in time as a house-warming present for my sister-in-law?
