I just couldn't resist taking another photo since I can't believe how well they fit and how good they feel. I think this is the most fun project I have done so far. Yes, maybe even more fun than the first pair of socks - it was certainly easier!!
Sharon - the sole is the double knit (inner and outer) joined with the bumper. I am looking around for something to paint on the bottom for more non-skid. Although I have read many suggestions, as soon as I find something I like, I will let you know.
To everyone who is thinking about knitting these - GO FOR IT!!! They were easy, quick and "oh so fun."
Last Thursday was one of those "cable guy" days. Our copier machine tech was supposed to arrive between 10 and 12. At 1:45 he actaully got here. Then we got the bad news: he could no longer get parts for our 15 year old Canon. So here we are, (please excuse our messy computer desk!) many $$$$ later with a digital laser copier. Yes, it is that big honkin' apparition all the way over on the right.
Hmmmm - maybe we need a smaller computer desk to make room for Big Bertha (AKA Canon Imagerunner 2200). IKEA - here I come.
My husband is a music publisher, so we have always needed commercial office machines. This one has more bells and whistles than we know what to do with. Best of all, it is really great for enlarging those hard to read knitting patterns!
Off to my studio to make a few reeds, warm up a bit and teach some lessons.
Happy Hump Day~
