Romeo, Tybalt and Mercutio ...oh my

Besides all the hunky men in t-shirts, another great thing about NYC in the summer are all the free concerts and events.
The top one on my list is Shakespeare in the Park. Waking up at 5 in the morning after closing my store the night before, waiting on line in Central Park for six hours and then having to come back seven hours later for the show is worth it. This year the first show is Romeo and Juliet and it was fabulous. There is nothing better than seeing handsome Romeo dueling hunky Tybalt in a pool of water, and why is it that no matter the production, Mercutio is always HOT!

Well back to the knitting ...

After two different patterns and four false starts, I have finally appeased the sock knitting gods and I am progressing well on my new sock.

Koigu is my yarn of choice and the pattern is a new one from SockPixie called Groovy Sock.
I got the link from the podcast Socks in the City. It is the easiest repeat and it knits up quickly, so I recommend it to anyone who has had a small battle with the sock gods and just needs to redeem themselves. Of course I agree with Dharmafey and all others who say that sock knitting will live forever and who really needs all those shawls anyway.

Now to redeem myself to others ... I will do the short row heel on this sock. Yes I will try it and since I will be able to carefully measure the heel this time it might work out better for my precious little foot. Now let me state right now for the record, if I don't like the way it looks...back to my loyal heel flap I go !

Happy Knitting to all.
