The sock gets a new heel and goes to an airshow
First, the new and improved short row heel for the sockapaloooza sock:
Yes, the flap heel has been frogged. In its place, a new, more proportional short row heel. Not only does this heel look better, I have a feeling it will fit better too.
The sock had quite an adventurous weekend as well. Most of the heel/foot knitting was done in the car on Saturday, as we were sitting in traffic trying to get to the California Capital Airshow. It took us an hour and a half to go about 2 miles! Finally, we gave up, and postponed our trip to the airshow until Sunday. Having learned our lesson, we took the light rail and bus on Sunday. Much easier than fighting traffic!
The sock (and I) got to see some pretty cool planes. Very little knitting got done at the airshow though. I was too busy marveling at the performances and all the amazing aircraft. Between Todd and I, we ended up with over 400 pictures from the airshow... a few of my favorites are below.
