Turning A Corner

My life has been anything but a stable straight line lately and it seems that I have finally turned a corner. And what did I find around the bend, do you ask? Why a foot of course! The foot of a sock to be exact. I have at last taught myself how to turn the heel of a knitted sock. I have been whining and moaning over this for ages. I gently fondle all the lovely sock yarns in the needlework shops, stare at the amazing color combinations, drool over the incredible abundance that Staci produces...but no results from me. Until now! I have had this yarn forever, Lion Brand Sock-Ease in a lovely color called "Cotton Candy". Well, it was anything but "ease" for me in making this sock. Yes, it is but one sock, not even a pair. I started it on Thanksgiving so my rate of production is painfully slow. So all of you dear, sweet, generous people who were so sadly left out of my holiday gift-giving, a pair of socks may be on their way to you........some day.
