Happy Valentines Day!
I haven't got much actual content today. The last week or so I've been coughing and feeling under-oxygenated. I'm heading out to the doctor this afternoon to see if he can find out what's wrong (probably bronchitis or something) and more pertinently, from my point of view, fix it. I explain only because I haven't gotten much done fiber-wise since just getting the responsible grown-up type stuff of every day life done has been sucking up what energy I've had. I do have a photo of the RSC sock with the heel turn and about half of the first lace repeat of the foot done.
As you can see my foot and the heel of this sock are not really compatible. There's a little extra something there at the bottom right. I think it's because the heel is centered over 9 stitches left unwrapped in the middle and that doing fewer there would work better for my particular (or even peculiar since it's wide up front - I usually say I have duck feet and leave it at that) foot. But I'm not certain I'm right about that. Other ideas cheerfully entertained.
I think these socks are headed to someone else's feet though (a particular someone whose feet are the same size but whose heel is wider so I think they'll fit her fine) so I'm just going to knit them both to pattern and then make a note to try it over fewer center stitches for the next pair I knit in this pattern. It's been a fairly easy to knit pattern so I will probably make it again since it seems to play nice with the variegated yarn. Of which, I have rather a lot.
Still waiting to hear from fuzzbutt...
