It's Not All Bad, with Footnotes
Waving Lace Socks,* in my red hand-dyed sock yarn ...
Calla Lily socks, yarn and pattern by Sundara. If you look closely at these pictures, you will see something rarely seen on affiknitty.** That's right ... heel flaps and gussets! I usually do short row heels, because they are easy on the magic loop, I am lazy, and they do fit me well. I decided to try the flap and gusset on these two pair, just because. And I have to say, it's a little more fun than the short row heel. You get an extra parade moment or two.
On Saturday, I went to the SnB Cleveland East Side meetup. This was my first time going to a knitting group since moving to Ohio*** and I had a great time. Because I am a total dork, I gave out my blog address to the two other knitters there. Here's a little shout out to Joyce and Preti, if you happen to stop by here! I really enjoyed meeting you both and hope to see you again!
Today's Musical Moment!**** One of my favorite new musical discoveries is the Missouri band Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. They may be from the Midwest, but they've clearly got a thing for the Pacific Northwest. You can listen to their little piece of indie-pop perfection "Oregon Girl" here.
* God, I love knitting socks. It's just so satisfying. Makes for a boring blog, perhaps, but a happy knitter.
** Knitting content, while technically correct, is not the answer I am looking for.
*** Yeah, it only took me three years.
**** Because it's my blog, dammit!
