Finished Summer Sock Party Socks


I finally finished sock #2 of my Summer Sock Party Socks. Tonia provided detailed instructions which helped ensure a perfect match. She also provided a lesson on short-row heels. I'm getting better at this type of heel but I still don't like them. I know I've said it before but I have to say it again. I don't like short-row heels. I just don't like knitting them. It feels unnatural. Although I do like the way they look. Who knows, they could become my favorite. In high school there was this girl I really didn't like - you might say I hated her. She became one of my nearest and dearest friends. She knows me better than I know myself -- knows when I'm upset about something without me having to tell her, comforts me when I need comforting, talks about things when I'm ready to talk about them, never pushes too hard --- a true kindred spirit. So, I've learned to give things a chance because you never know what treasure you might find or where you'll find it.

The socks look great! Sorry about the short row heel. It was the only heel that I knew how to do at the time.

Talk to you later!
