Here's what happens when you don't read those directions carefully and jump to conclusions...I picked up the stitches as instructed and distributed them on 3 needles, as instructed. The directions then say to complete the heel as for toe shaping of Seashell shorties, Shape toe, p. 2. I went to page 2 and what do you think I did???? I followed the directions for the heel...after all I was knitting the heel. I was on the gusset before I realized that something was terribly amiss...how was this going to attach to the foot that had already been knitted?!?! This is when I started to look at this a little closer and went back to read the instructions...RIP, RIP, RIP! After spending last evening on knitting the heel, and this evening ripping out what had been knitted, I'm back on track. I will let you know how this works out.
Why is it that knitting, can at times, be sooooooooooo frustrating???

I also cast on a pair of socks using my Cascade Fixation. I think I started to long for nice weather, which led me to thinking about summer socks, which led me back to my stash and the Fixation. I cast on a pattern called Garden Partie. They are really turning out to be a nice lacey sock.
Besides these projects, I'm nearly done with the second blue Orchard sock (see previous posts) and have cast on a cable purse out of a bulky yarn. I started this purse for a fundraiser being held at the end of the month.
As you can see, I have been pretty busy. Now I'll get back to knitting and give you an update soon.
