ON THE NEEDLES
OK, I’m admitting it…. I’m not in love with the Grace socks, not at all. You can see them here. Should I cut my losses and frog or grit my teeth and finish because they’re so far along (heel finished on first sock). WWYD?
Know what? Never mind. I’m frogging and starting Kew from Knitty, just because I love that pattern and have always wanted to knit it.

SOCKS ON THE NEEDLES
Knitting continues on the current socks in progress. Amazing how much can be accomplished when you have new yarn that you love and a bad case of startitis and have resolved to finish at least one pair before starting anything new.
I got the Grace gusset and heel turn accomplished last night, wasn’t happy with it because the pattern called for the wrap and turn technique and try as I might, I just don’t like the look of a wrap and turn, frogged the heel and redid it using my favorite SSK/P2tog technique. Much, much better.
Grace in progress
I also finished the first of the Catnip Socks and cast on the second. I apologize for the cluttered background, too lazy to go somewhere less busy to snap a quick pic.

I now have happy feet!! Made it to the salon for a pedi and though not completely rehabbed, my feet are definitely on the road to recovery! I’ll spare you the picture.
