WIP - Rainbow socks

Remember my last post on knitting? Remember how scattered it was? And how I talked about making a list of projects and trying to be a bit more systematic about my knitting?

Yeah. Well.

Saturday night (at around 10pm) I casted on for a pair of Rainbow socks in Lorna Lace's Shepherd Sock in Mt Creek. The pattern is knit from the cuff down but I've decided to do it toe up. I want them to be as long as possible. These are constructed with a short row heel and I've never made one successfully before... Oh, I've made them alright, but I haven't made one that I can wear. Now, I know I should try to knit them on more than half of the stitches to compensate for my high instep. Wish me luck!

I *love* te way the yarn is patterning on those socks! I hope the short row heel works out for you. I did my first one on my last pair of socks and it took me 10 tries to get it right!

Thank you girls! I'm quite happy with the sock myself. Getting closer to starting the short row heel and I really hope I can get one to fit my foot. Hold your thumbs for me, will you? :)
