Knitting Update

Before I left for the West Coast, I started a pair of socks for my step-mom. Here is the progress so far.
The yarn is Cinnamons Dyepot in the Wineberries colorway. I'm doing a garter-rib stitch...something easy for the plane. I used a German-Twisted cast-on. I learned it a few years ago and struggled a bit to get it down this time. I'll have to check on YouTube to see if I did it right, but is certainly is a nice stretchy edge which is the important thing.

I'll be doing a Strong Heel. I think this website describes it quite well. It isn't necessarily a sturdier heel. I believe it is named for the person who created it.

I'm not 100% sure I like the way the colors are pooling, but we'll see what Kathy thinks.

I just got home Tuesday night, and tonight I head over to my sister's place to spend tonight through Sunday with her and the Little Guy while her hubby is out of town. Of course it will be a wonderful time.

Speaking of my sister, we are planning to run a 5K together the first weekend of September. Considering that I haven't run anything other than errands in the last 10 years, this may be a challenge. I've been out running and it seems to be going okay...I just don't know if I'll make it 5K. I'll keep ya posted.
