In Which the Pirate Wears Socks.

quicktoeups4My goodness! From this angle, my feet look cute and little! You’d never guess I wear a size 10.5… Anyway, today I wore the Quick Toe-Up Socks to work, and y’know – they don’t really fit so badly after all! They were a little tight to get on, but once I wore them for a bit, they settled right in. The instep isn’t too stretched out, and there’s no wrinkling of extra fabric no matter how I flex my foot around. That’s pretty darn cool. I read something about how short-row heels fit better when knit over 60% of the total stitches rather than 50%, and now of course I want to try that to see how well it works. I really do love the look of the short-row heel with self-striping yarn, and I’d like to keep using it if I can make it fit well.

So, just a short entry tonight. I put a few rows on the heel flap of Pomatomus, but Pirate-Husband and I were out for most of the evening and so I didn’t get much knitting done. We have very little planned for this weekend, and so other than house-cleaning and basking in the unseasonably warm weather, I shall be knitting! I’m pretty sure I can knit and bask at the same time…

    You’re shoes and socks are super cute! The colors look perfect together.

    Have fun basting and knitting. I wish the sun would stay out long enough for me to get some basking done. xD
