we have a leg!

Yes, a whole leg!

I can hear ya'll now. 'you said it would take you forever.' 'we told you it wouldn't take that long!' Yeah yeah yeah. But, I don't always have a nice three day weekend, one of which I *had* to stay home the whole day. Being required to stay home adds a lot of knitting time onto life. I could have cleaned, I could have done laundry, I could have even blogged since I was home anyway. I did none of those things. Kind of in protest to having to do a miserable and gross doctor nonsense**, I decided that I would only do things I wanted to do. None of that Suzy Homemaker shit for me!

I am now working the heel. In the process, i am learning a new thing. I have done quite a bit of color work before, but, as I went to turn the work to purl back across the heel flap, I realized that I have never purled in color work. As in, worked colors on the wrong side. I did something new! Awesome! I hope to finish up the heel tonight, so ya'll can see the cool construction. Oh, and for the people who wanted to know where I got this pattern:

Norwegian Sock

**the gross doctor thing, 'cause I know you want to know. I had to collect my pee for 24hours. nasty. nasty. nasty. Yeah, the person you saw on Monday with a bio hazard orange, gallon jug was me. And it was full o' pee. Yet another reason I did not go into health care. Giant orange jugs of urine.

I gotta say I am really loving your color choice. Very nice.

Nothing says dignity like a giant orange gallon jug of urine.

It could be worse -- if you'd had to transport it by air, you would have had to check it, since it's more than 3 oz. Try explaining THAT to TSA.

Whatcha got there? That a big jug o' pee? Wanna guess what I have in this big box?

Love the sock. I'm so impressed with your skill and your speed!

I had to do the same thing when I was pregnant! Eww!!

Never mind *how* you got it in there.


Hope all is well.
