Progress -Tour de France

I decided to try the Grumperina method of picking up stitches and - my gusset is a thing of beauty. It's even, there are no holes, and I am growing in sock-knitting confidence with every stitch. I was, indeed, born to knit socks. I'll post pictures in a day or two, when I'm closer to the toe.

And ... I finished Harry tonight. (Hornbill agreed to let me read it first.) So many questions answered...

Congrats on the gusset - I think that is the hardest part of sock knitting for sure.

I finally opened my copy of HP the last. I forced myself to wait until I had finished my re-read of all the others. I wanted to refresh my memory so I wouldn't miss any clues along the way!

oh good work Melanie. Born to knit socks huh? tee hee. I remember how you struggled.

I must look up the grumperina method. Have been having gusset issues of my own of late.

I'm so glad you are getting more comfortable with socks. I really think they are a satisfying project.

I'm primed to start HP tomorrow night ...

KSD said...

Yes, but I'm wondering whether the questions were answered to your satisfaction?
