I'm back! Actually, I got back Monday night, but I was exhausted from having too much fun, so I took a little extra time. Stitches South was so much fun, and I promise to get into all of that tomorrow, but today is WIP Wednesday, so I need to share some actual progress with you.
When last you saw the Prissy Sock it was just a cuff. I took this and my secret knitting with me to Atlanta and actually got quite a bit of knitting time. I am knitting the Vanilla Latte Socks with a three by one ribbing and a garter eye-of-partridge heel. I am particularly proud of the heel, which I managed without breaking the striping pattern. I was sitting on my friend Taryn's couch, dodging the kitty and watching bad horror movies (Night of the Lepus anyone?) when I was struck by inspiration. Because the pink stripe is the same width as the white and brown section and the white comes on either side, what if I stopped the stripe in the middle. That way, no matter what I ended up with on the other side it would theoretically match up. I am not sure if this would work on any other striping sequence, but I am pretty excited about its prospects for these socks. So excited, in fact, that I want to get back to knitting this one before I head to work.
