Day 143/365: Red Hots Sock in Progress

Leave a comment

I got a little further with the Red Hots sock today.  The pattern I’m using is from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson (of Wendy Knits).  It’s so simple and easy that even though I think about trying a different heel (like Cat Bordhi’s sweet tomato heel or the Sox Therapist’s fish lips kiss heel), I always come back to this basic pattern.

I finished knitting the gusset:

And turned the heel:

Now I just have to knit in the round for a few rows, throw in some ribbing for the cuff, and bind off.
