Time to Empty Some Needles

It has been a little while since I have shared for a "What's on the Needles Wednesday". I have been trying to finish up projects on the needles so that they will be free for my trip next week. There is nothing like a 20+ hour trip to make you appreciate portable crafting.

Since I know I am going to want to knit socks on the trip, that meant finishing up a pair of socks that I haven't even shared with you all yet. This yarn was another find at the Somerville Yarn Swap, and when I started I decided I didn't care if these were fraternal. So I just started at each end of the ball. After finishing the leg though, I just couldn't take it, which meant it was time for surgery.

Here you can see where I was removing a line of stitches to undo the old cuff and turn it into a new foot, completely in sequence with the other, completed sock. Amazing how much work I will do to avoid a little work isn't it?

These socks are amazing... are they ballet-slipper type?

They do sort of look that way don't they? Mostly they are just regular socks with replaceable soles, so that it can easily be replaced if the bottoms/heels/toes start wearing out.
