Cranky Pants and My First Sock

Well I had on my cranky pants last week.  Hub decided to help me change my mood so over the weekend he took me to Milk and Cookies, bought me my favorite candies from Jacques Torres, and accompanied me on a knitting related wild goose chase.  He was even disappointed when I walked out of The Point empty handed.  By the end of the weekend I felt much better.  That Hub is a good guy.

Even though the bulletproof poncho is languishing and this blog is still without pictures, good things are on the horizon.  Rhinebeck is almost here and I have made major progress on my first sock.  I am knitting it out of red Valley Yarns Huntington.  For the “pattern” I am using the sock cheat sheet from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Knitting Rules.  Last week it was moving along well and then I realized that I had made a mistake on the leg and that it was going to be too big.  It got ripped out at 7:00am in a McDonald’s parking lot. 

Right now I am getting ready to start the heel flap.  Because my numbers are different than in the book, I am a little concerned about figuring out how to turn the heel.  However, after doing all those Fuzzy Feet, I should be able figure it out eventually.

    Thanks Kathy! I do like the Huntington. The red is also a very rich color, which is great for a fall/winter sock.
