Olympics Challenge

There's a Craft Olympics Challenge and I've decided to knit a sock (hopefully two).  Here's the sock so far:

I'm almost to the mid point -- at least the mid point in the leg, where the slit will go.  Never attempted a sock like this before (I've attempted a couple of socks, but they've never gotten much past this point anyway).  So I have high hopes for this technique.

It's from one of Cat Bordhi's books, Personal Footprints.  I like it so far.  Tho I don't have complete confidence in my footprint.  I'll see how it turns out.


Curling works really great for knitting.

At this point I'm supposed to leave the heel 'til later and begin the leg.  But first I have to cut the yarn!!  I think I'll look at it a little longer before I do that....
