I am still learning socks. This is my first gusset heel. The short row heel was easy to do, but the results for the gusset are much better. My only problem is knowing when to start it. I think I started it about 1/2 inch too late. And if you are thinking “That’s one looooong sock” it actually fits ok. Kinda sad… But my feet are 10 inches long ­čśŽ It does look funny though.

In addition to finishing a sock today, I made my customary bird and got some bird fabric. The husband got some plants. The quilt shop and the nursery are right next to each other. It works out.

I worked a long┬áday today and I didn’t have the energy to sew a bird. I sat out on the patio knitting for a few minutes until the bugs got to be too annoying.

So here are some pictures of my socks. The sock on the bottom or left is my first attempt and the one on the right or top is my second. Clearly, gauge is everything.
