Of Socks and Eternal Optimism

I've gotten past the heel and just barely past the gusset for my first Twisted Flower Sock! It's been sitting patiently, waiting for me to have some time to sit down and figure out what to do for the heel. Cookie A. has designed the sock with the flower petals going down the heel flap, which is gorgeous and interesting and totally looks great on the sock. I don't wear clogs though and that's the shoe style you need to show off a pretty heel flap so I decided to work a traditional heel flap in Heel Stitch because it would wear better in my shoes. Once I sat down and figured out how I was going to tweak the pattern (taking plenty of notes so the second sock will be the same), it didn't take too long to get where I'm at. Now it's just smooth sailing down the foot to the toe! I am still in love with these socks, the way the flower petals flow into the twisted stitch part of the design and back again makes me feel a little woozy.

Perhaps it was watching the sock's stitch pattern take shape, perhaps it was the finishing of the Flower Basket Shawl (thanks for all the comments by the way! I'd love to reply but Blogger doesn't allow that kind of thing with their comments - blech), whatever it was, we decided to do another puzzle. After all, Finn is 10 months old now. Certainly he has reached a level of maturity over where he was at, um, 9 months old? Surely we have learned to keep the puzzle pieces on the table. We can do this - can't we?

I present Exhibit C:

The 999 piece Barber Shop puzzle (look in the lower right corner). Puzzle Pup strikes again!

Does anyone know what the world record is for the largest collection of puzzles missing a piece or two? We might be giving it a run pretty soon.

I love the sock! The design is so pretty and it looks soft.

As for Finn, I would estimate that in another 14 months, you may have complete puzzles, but not before then!

LOL, I can just picture Finn sneaking up and nabbing a puzzle piece. I wonder where he's hiding them, or perhaps he's enjoying them as a snack? Lovely socks, that leg pattern is to die for! Kinda makes me want to get back into knitting socks again.

Gorgeous sock. If you really want to reply to commenters you might want to consider installing Haloscan. I hear it's easy to install with Blogger! http://www.haloscan.com/

I love the socks.

If Finn is anything like my uncle's dog there will be no more complete puzzles in your house. But a loving puppy is definitely worth missing a few pieces.
