A funny thing happened while I was working on a sock; I was knitting on the cuff of my Aran Twist sock by Deby Lake, when it occured to me to try a crochet chain to use as a basis for a toe up sock. It worked, but on the next sock I will chain about 10 stitches in stead of 8. I am not sure if I should take a picture of it or not; it is Tufootsies in a nice Easter colorway. There is also progress on my Fortissima 6 ply and I am now on the gusset, foot portion.

I had been knitting on my 2 color old shale socks off and on for a year or so when I finally decided to try them on. Finally.
So, on the sock that is down to the foot and is tourniquet like, it will stay and go on the leg that is less swollen, the other I ripped inches back and changed to a size 2.75mm needle instead of the 2.25mm needles I was using. This ought to buy me some stretch.
Frogging, ugh, been doing that all week long.
