Year of Project 03: Shur'Tugal 02


SOCKTOPUS: Totally Vanilla • Kandahar • V Junkie • Kwalia • Farmer McGregor • Shur'tugal • 2luvcrew • Vorticity • Rumpled! • Crowley • Om Shanti • Mince Pie Mayhem • Hundred Acre Wood • De Stijl • Fiori di Zucca • Caretta Caretta • Spring Shoots

I missed posting a Year of Projects update last week, in no small part because there was scant progress to update. Another week later and there's a bit more sock done. I've finished the leg, turned the heel and started the gusset decreases on sock one. With a Florida getaway planned for later this month, I want to get these done and off the needles before we leave ... after all, disaster tends to strike if I leave a sock project hibernating for any length of time.

The heel flap of this sock is very cool looking - with vertical ridges running top to bottom, created by columns of slipped stitches on the right side rows. Might be my favourite part of this design!

I'll leave you with this video from Rick Mercer ... kinda sums up how I'm feeling about this never-ending winter now!

Lovely to have something to look forward to at the end of the month. The socks are looking great and I'm sure you will get them finished soon.
