Hello, Sock Pal. I’ve got it under control.

I got it! This time I really got it! (until the next time I frog, hehe)

Six. No funny-lookin’ paired decreases on this sock!

Seven. And the fit ain’t bad either!

Eight. Once I completed the heel, I visually separated the pattern stitches of the instep from the stockinette stitches of the sole by columns of slipped stitches.

Little details make all the difference :). Hope that makes up for the fact that I’m trying on your socks.

    Love it! You are so cleaver. I love the look of the slipped stitch…very nice…I will wear them everyday…if they are mine!

    I suppose you could always tell your sock pal that you washed the socks before you sent them. Whether or not you actually do wash them is up to you 😉

    Simply fabulous. A beautifully simple design that just goes to show us all the extent of your brilliance. Wow. I personally can’t imagine why your sock pal would have any problem with you trying his/her socks on because I’d bet you have the cleanest feet on the planet (ditto on the hands). 🙂

    You did get it and so quickly too! Your sock pal is very lucky to be getting such cool socks. The slip stitch idea is ingenious, giving you a very nice demarcation line.

    So, you going to wash those before you send them out?

    Looks great! Your sock pal is lucky to get such lovely socks. I can’t wait for you to post this pattern.

    Mission Accomplished — Yahoo. The beautiful of the yarn is enhanced by your choice of stitches.

    Oh, little grumperina, YOU CRACK ME UP!!!!!! Your sock photojournalism has made me realize why I avoid socks … not because they aren’t beautiful, or rewarding, or challenging… but because I do not have enough memory on my camera for all the frogged sock pics I would have to take LOL. You are so funny! I love your sock travails!!
