Of course, my weird sense of humor can't help but notice that this looks a little like I'm knitting a bikini top for a couple of saggy boobs :*D Sorry - yes, I just had to go there LOL!!!
All foolishness aside, I believe I am almost at the point of beginning to work the increases to prepare for the heel flap. You may notice that there is a slight decrease in there along the foot where there normally wouldn't be a decrease. As I tried the socks on (one great advantage of doing the toe-up method) they were a little loose, so I decided to take off a couple of stitches to make them a little more snug. They're still a good fit, not too tight at all, and I definitely like the feel of the fit a lot better. I debated whether to pull it all out to the toe and work that part again with fewer stitches, but that was a really scary thought to me, and I quickly discarded that idea!!!
I really like the red yarn! It is soft but thicker than the yarn I used on my first pair of socks. These are going to be really comfy come cold toes weather!!!
I bet you're looking for the "Oh Wow's!!!" aren't you?
I know I would be!!!
At our Piecemaker's Guild last night during Show and Tell, there were a couple of quilts that I just had to share with you! Now bear in mind that there are some really talented ladies in this group, so every Show and Tell is pretty much amazing. I know I missed getting pictures of a couple of others that were gorgeous, but I thought you might really enjoy seeing these two quilts in particular ....
Susie Cole made this quilt for a pastor who has taken a vow of poverty and has very little to decorate his home....
Wholecloth quilting! Isn't this beautiful?!??!!!

Those are 1/2" squares my friend!!!
Yep - we were all saying Oh my Gosh!!!
See how teeny tiny??? Wow!!!
I'll be linking up with On The Needles at Judy's Patchwork Times today.
