Hello everyone!

I am currently working on a pair of socks done toe up and 2 at a time.  I am using Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock yarn, and I think it is a pretty color.  It is taking me a LONG time to finish these socks because I am only working on them catch as catch can, usually for about an hour every other night while I am watching TV. The pattern is called Butterfly Socks and it has a really pretty lace pattern on the instep and stockinette on the bottom of the foot.  I am 4 rows from finishing the heel, and then I have to turn the heel. I am using Fleegle’s Heel on these socks because it is the easiest heel that I have tried to date, and I don’t have to keep looking at the pattern to see where I go from here.  I have 4 more rows to do before I turn the heel, and then it will go pretty fast after that.  The butterfly lace pattern is worked all the way around on the leg part of the pattern, so it will go pretty fast as I have it memorized now.  I never make my socks as long as they are made in the pattern because I don’t like to wear long socks.  I like my socks to fit my foot well and maybe another inch to 2 inches up the leg before I start the ribbing and eventually bind off the socks.  For those who are interested, here is the link to Fleegle’s Heel:

Here is the link to the Ravelry page that has the socks (paid pattern) that I am doing on the page:

Here is a picture of a pair of them in a fuchsia colorway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are really going to be beautiful when I am done with them, IF I ever get done with them!  It seems to be taking me forever to get this pair done! Here are the pictures of the socks where I am at right now.  As you can see, I have the foot almost completely done, and once I am done there it won’t take me that long to reach the finish line.  I don’t want to start another pattern before I get these done.  So, back to the knitting I suppose!  I am getting bored with these socks so I need to hurry up and get them off of my needles!  Boredom will get me every time!
