One heel down, one to go

The heels on Arenda Holladay’s Tipsy Triangle socks are extremely different from anything else I’ve tried before.  This is a good thing – new technique learned!  The instruction/article in Cast On clearly states that this is more like commercial socks than most heels.  I’m thinking that’s a fair statement. 


Note that is the heel NOT the toe.  Here is how things look so far:  

The ‘top’ is the toe and instep, the bottom is the heel, when on the foot it fits perfectly with very little in the way of gapping.  When I’ve practiced a few more times there shouldn’t be any gapping at all.  This is so cool!!!!!

In non-knitting life…  been back to the dr with another upper uti (yeah, it’s really a kidney infection), was trying to wait it out until the insurance takes effect on 9/14 but sometimes you just have to do what the old body tells you to.

And…. was able to spend a few hours yesterday with one of my college roommates and her lovely mom.  We originally met because I was engaged to her brother a million years ago (didn’t work out, long story) and became close friends.  Unfortunately, over the years we drifted apart so it was wonderful to catch up again.  It turns out they now live just a few miles away, this is wonderful!!!

She’s been going through some real trials as well but seems to be taking things in stride and dealing with the obstacles.  I’m so glad to have renewed the friendship there.
