slowness...

Here is the progress on my socks. I just finished the funny little heal gusset. This gusset starts from the center of the sole rather then the side of the ankles. Right now I'm trying to figure out what to do next. The photo on the pattern is showing a slip stitch heel flap, but the directions just say knit the heel back and forth on needle #2. Humm.. I'll have to research this online because the next sentence is talking about decreases.. I'm confused..
















The next project I'm planning on knitting is this entrelac wrap from knitscene magazine, the winter 2008-spring 2009 issue. My yarn budget is super small and so finding the right yarn has taken a while. I ended up purchasing Lion Brand Alpine wool in black and natural and decided to dye the natural in reds and purples. I'm not happy with how the purple came out so I am going to over dye it today maybe add a little blue in with the purple and see what happens. I notice that the colors were muted that the yarn didn't seem to take the dye well. Usually the colors are very bright. I'm also going to use less water in the dye solution. ( fingers crossed heheh)
