I just put in a short rowed heel on the sock for my sister. That is the no-wrap heel from the Easy Sock pattern from Oz yarns' archived web site. Very easy to do; there is the tiny hole in the corner where I have the color change so I will do a sewed stitch to close that. It is not big, just want it to last, sister lives in the Umbria region of Italy on a hill and it can get cold.

I have taken the tests about 6 times; most of the time it says Gryffindor, 2 times it said Hufflepuff and one time it said Ravenclaw. Now, I don't mind being thought intelligient, as a Ravenclaw, Modest, Humble and Hardworking as a Hufflepuff, or brave and chivalrous as a Gryffindor, and daring to boot, but this is what the conundrum that Harry Potter must have felt. I guess I would be the chamelean and blend in with those around me whereever I went.

Colleen got her kit a month after me and she is down past the heel and on the foot, whereas I have not even done my heel yet. However part of that is waiting to see if I can get some bright green yarn to go with the sock. Hers will look so much better than mine and look at that patterning! I love my camera.

I met with a friend at PANERA BREAD CO. which has not just great bread, but some awesome broccoli chedder soup. That makes for a great place to camp out for a couple of hours (the length of time it took my mango freezee drink to stop giving me headaches everytime I took a sip) and we got some knitting done. I was working on socks for my sister and a sock kit that my friend Colleen is also working on. Her kit came a month after mine and she is way ahead of me. I did cast on extra stitches and stuff, but still it looks awesome in person. We got a lady at an adjoining table to take this picture.
