bobbing along on Caspian Seas
At the end of the chart for the foot, the sock looked too short for my big feet so I extended the pattern by several rows before starting the multicolour cuff. I'm figuring that I'll be working the afterthought heel sometime on Saturday. See the pink waste yarn? As I remove it, live stitches will be exposed above and below. I've done this before - some mitten patterns like Quo Vadis use an afterthought thumb - but it's nerve wracking!
Then all that's left to do is to weave in the ends. And what a lot of ends! I'm hoping for a sunny day when the sock is done; all these photos on overcast mornings don't do the colours justice at all.
