Short Row Heel

I have always wanted to try a "short row toe" but have been hesitant to try. I finally decided to try with this sock and can't believe I was ever intimidated. All you need is patience and alot of stitch markers. As long as you follow the instructions, all goes well. I can't ever see going back to a heel flap and cup again, though I may do it for nostalgia. Here is the finished heel. Now I'm ready to get the foot done.

Oh, just so you know, this is a Beaded Rib Pattern from "Sensational Knitted Socks." The yarn is Knit Picks "Memories" 100% Merino Wool. The picture doesn't fully represent the colorway, it's a red, violet, purple, lavender variegated.

True Blue Thank You

I like to show my appreciation to clients for referring me to their friends. I ususally do a gift card or send flowers.  However, this referral came while I was doing the Mid-September KAL. 

The "soapbottle dress" on the left was the KAL and I thought this would be a fitting gift. The pattern was so nice, that I whipped up a cloth to go with it. The recipient of this gift has a fabulous victorian house that she has done a great dob decorating. I can see this in her kitchen or bath. I'm sure she'll enjoy and appreciate this.
