One down one to go

hI finished one of my Rapid River socks yesterday.

I really love this pattern and the yarn (knitpicks essential) is absolutely yummy.  I did the heel flap like the pattern suggested.  Usually I feel flapped heels are really big and bulky but this one isn’t.  (AND NO GUSSET HOLES!  GO ME!) 

I tried to do something different with the toes and wanted to take the lace pattern as far up as possible, but they turned out a little boxy.  Even too boxy for my tastes.  I think a wash will help them out a bit.

I’m in line waiting to join the SAM3 and would like to finish these this month.  Melissa has already requested a pair of socks for herself so maybe I’ll do some simple stockinette ones for her next month. 🙂

 Hope this post finds everyone happy, healthy, and warm!

    Hi! I’m your hostess for SAM3. You should have received your blog invite a couple of times by now, but let me know if you need me to resend it again. 🙂 Maybe I have your e-mail address wrong? Just let me know, and I’ll get it straightened out. I didn’t realize you were still waiting. So sorry.
