Did You Hear That?

That's me squeaking in one pair of socks in the final moments of Socktober. Not even adult sized socks. Preschooler socks in a fairly large gauge. Seems like a copout, but here they are (these are also my October socks for SAM2): (Look, Ma! No holes!)
Knit in Cascade Fixation on size US 2s. 40 stitch sock with baby cable rib cuff.
These are my first ever shortrow heels. I used a Sherman heel and it couldn't have been easier (well, if I had the same # of sts. as the pattern, that might have made it a hiccup easier, but I'm not complainin') and there are no holes! Yeah!In the spirit of trying new things, I also brazenly stole borrowed the idea for the toe treatment (and the heel, in part) from Dave. They were a super quick knit, once I conquered the gauge issues that seem to be plaguing me of late, and Zoe has proclaimed them, "Comfturtle" asking to sleep in them for her nap. That is a huge compliment coming from my Uber sensitive daughter.

And here's a little preview of what tonight holds in store for us here Chez Bitter:
Happy Halloween from the Jack-o-Lantern and the Bat (Fwap-fwap!)

Cute socks! I love it when the little ones are so appreciative. :)

You have beautiful knits, and children too.

I am more jealous of your knitting ability. I need to understand some of what you are doing because, novice wannabe (that's me), would like to some day finish some darn thing!!!!

I would love to knit the socks. They are truly gorgeous.

Zoe's socks look great, Lisa! I sure do like the way the Dave toes turned out. Congratulations on your first short-row heel.
