Lizard, part 2

I finished up the first Lizard sock, and have started on the second.  The pattern is so cute.  I might have to do these again with a different yarn, as I am less than pleased with the variegated yarn that I chose.  The Regia silk is very soft, and wonderful on the foot, but lacking in stretch and memory.  The socks are incredibly warm, and will make a great pair of winter socks.  In the second photo, you can see how I put a striped bottom on the foot, and added gusset increases.  I saw this done by a fellow Ravelry knitter, and thought that it made a lot of sense for me.  It also gives every stitch on the bottom of the foot it’s own short float, which makes it feel more substantial.

I received my next to the last copy of Vogue magazine.  coverOne by one I have let the knitting magazine subscriptions expire.  Vogue was the one to hold my attention the longest, but I have so many projects in que, yarn enough to do me for quite some time, no desire to store a lot of past issues, and Ravelry inspirations hitting me daily—not to mention Twist Collective.  I need to figure out what to do with the past issues that I have and see if there is anything that I really need to keep.
