Moving right along on my sock! (A Roll in the Hay) Yesterday I knitted the heel flap. I did a slip stitch heel, and I just thought it looked so nice with this yarn in particular. Here it is!

I am fascinated by the heel of a sock. You take a tube, add a flap, pick up stitches and make this cool heel.
So now I am working on “Shaping the Gusset”. If that term doesn’t make a person feel like a “real knitter”, nothing will!
It occurred to me that after I finish this sock, I need to knit the other one. That’s a problem when I am already looking longingly towards the next pattern. I don’t suppose that I could work my way through the book, knitting only one sock from each pattern. What if I promised to come back and knit the second ones later? I know, bad bad idea. The second sock should go much more quickly though now that I have figured the pattern out.
And then I will start a pattern called Two To Tango! It involves a little color work where I will knit little fishies!
It’s pretty cool outside today (relatively speaking). Davey likes to go downtown and “stroll”. He gets in his stroller and we wander around town. So I think we are going to go do that now before it gets too warm or the sun comes back out.
Finally, this morning, David and Davey were building. I was trying to take pictures of them, and Davey kept saying, “Mommy you startled me!” everytime the flash went off.
Davey loved the giraffe they built:
