weekend update

The first Leyburn sock is done. It's a beautiful sock pattern; I'm already thinking about knitting more pairs. And the yarn is just perfect. For this sock, I tried out Jeny Staiman's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. Aptly named, I'd say, because it really is surprisingly stretchy. Perfect for the top cuff of a sock!

And despite the technicolour look, my ankle is getting better. There's still a bit of swelling right on the ankle and across the top of my foot, but at least now I can fit my foot comfortably into a shoe. Every day it's a little better.

We spent this weekend at a friend's cottage on Lake Erie, and since the Leyburn socks are intended for this friend, I had to put them aside and knit something else. No problem, it was just the push I needed to get started on my second Caspian Seas sock.

Oh your poor foot! I had a giant bruise just below my knee that looked similar (no swelling tho) and it's finally faded to yellow

Sock looks good!

Congrats on the sock finish.

Owie -- that foot looks sore. Glad it is getting better.
