And around the first bend!

Olympic Knitting 2006

We successfully got through the weird heel while watching Shaun White win his gold, and finally finished picking up stitches for the gusset yesterday. Thanks to some TV watching last night, the gusset decreases are now done and we're off and running for the foot, which means I don't have to carry the pattern around anymore for a while, thank goodness.

Yay sock! Yay Kat! Boo spam comments.

Um, does your software allow you to set up validation, in which you would have us type out a little code as displayed in a box? That seems to be what a lot of sites do to discourage 'bots.

An Olympic note - found a reference at another blog to a mention of the Knitting Olympics at Time magazine! Here's the link:


Hope you're having fun on your trip! The socks are coming along great!
