Nancy Bush has so much information in this book. I love all the variations on heels and toes. My only trouble is many of the socks I'd love to knit only have a pattern for one size. Sure there are larger sizes in the book, but what if I don't want to knit the sock that fits? (If the sock fits, wear it?)
Does anyone out there have tips on how I can adjust sock pattern sizes? I've always followed a pattern, never knitted willy nilly.... I'm frightened! What if it blows up?

I love the pattern, it reminds me of a Japanese print. Sock yarn is hard to find in Indy, apparently. I did hunt down some Cherry Tree Hill supersock yarn. It's nice to knit with. I've never knit with sock yarn before. It's so tiny! It took forever to ball it up, as it tangled big time. I think it took me four hours just to unknot and roll the stuff.
I also bought some alchemy yarn, silk purse, in green. It's so lovely. I just want to rub my face in it. The shop only had one skein, I'm not sure what to do with it yet. Maybe a scarf.

Hours, HOURS to create a simple little post. So this is my first time with pictures. So I'm not an HTML genius. How difficult should it be? Seriously.

I'm almost done with my first sweater! I made too small for me to wear, lol. I wanted it done fast so that I could put it together. I've never assembled a sweater before, so all this seaming is new to me.
I don't think I'll use this yarn again though for a sweater. It tends to disintegrate as I sew up the seams. It's all fluff held together with a tiny little floss through the center. I hope it holds...
I'd like to point out my impatience now, and that unless the problem is so serious that it can't be ignored, I don't go back and fix problems. The top square is all nice and neat, however, with all the extra yarn woven in.
