Opal sock

During my flight to the University of Virginia I did get a bit of knitting time. It was actually strange to be on a flight without my husband and daughter. I had uninterrupted, focused time!

I've been working on a basic crew sock in the Opal 6 ply. This is my first self patterning yarn, and I'm enjoying the funky looking sock. I am a little disappointed in the yarn, however. It is pretty splitty and you have to really pay attention.

Notice that I'm trying a different pattern this time, from Simple Socks: Plain and Fancy by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts. The heel is different from the heel that I've used in my other socks. The other socks had a heel flap on which you would then pick up the stitches along the side. This is a continuous heel pocket. I ripped it out once since it seemed too lacey and it is better--but not perfect. I have to look at it again to see what is going on with the sock!
