The start of a heel flap

See, all I really needed was to focus on one knitting project at a time. The leg is finished, the heel flap a 3rd of the way done. Really should be concentrating on christmas knitting, which is exactly why I’m working on the sock for myself.

As Bobbi observed, I wound on the wool after the first one so that I started in the same place on the stripes and will have matching socks. I’m not sure if this is a particularly healthy habit to get into – I mean, I like things that match. Well, most of the time. If I wear odd socks it’s usually on purpose. I’ve found on this that I’ve been checking the stripes quite a lot against the already finished sock. Perhaps a little too much.

As I mentioned before my next pair will be knit together on one circular needle. I’ll be attempting to do this using the instructions for casting on shown here at sockbug. As was pointed out by Nic (who has a lot of sock yarn in her stash) this means there are two socks to ignore! That sounds right up my alley.

I’ve noticed this last month that I haven’t been blogging quite so much. I think part of it is that I’ve been spending more time driving than on the train, which means less thinking time, as I sing or, you know, concentrate on driving, while I’m driving. It also means less knitting time, which means less to blog about.
Anyway, I haven’t been putting up the books I’ve read for the last few months. I’ll be getting back to that soon. Not sure I’ll get them all up, and they won’t be in order, but it’ll do.
