Finally!!!

After much gnashing of teeth, I've managed to make it past the heel on my Harvest Sock Swap Sock. I'm sorry there isn't a progress picture. I know I always feel a little disappointment when there isn't a picture of something in a blog entry. So, I'm sorry to disappoint but this news needed to be shared with our without a photo. I tried another pattern -- a mock cable with lace mixed in. I will not trouble you with the disturbing tale of what happened when I got to the heel. Suffice it to say, it just didn't work out. So, I gave up on that pattern -- I wasn't loving it anyway -- and went back to the Yukon Leaves pattern I'd originally chosen. I'm well past the heel now and am praying I haven't forgotten how to make toes. Anything is possible -- this last week has been . . . humbling. I hope its all behide me now.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this time around your sock-knitting experience will be a good one!
