Here's the Sugar Maple pair just as I've completed the heel and ready to begin the gusset.
Ron and I went to Columbia for lunch at The Cracker Barrel. Lots of people had the same destination for lunch. We had a delicious meal and ate to beyond full. Yummy grub for such a cold, cold day. Winter's showing the last of herself with a blustery and misty day.
Just north of Columbia woke this morning to a quarter-inch of snow. Some in Columbia lost power over night due to the fierce winds. Jeff had the wind, but no precip.
Dropped in both yarn stores while we were up there. The pair of Sloggers that I ordered over a month ago finally came in, so picked those up then went on to True Blue Fiber Friends where I found this lovely sock yarn for my stash. It's TOFUtsies [toe-foot-sies]. 50% superwash wool, 225% soysilk fibers, 22.5% cotton, and 2.5% Chitin. Ahhh, you want to know what the heck Chitin is, right? "Chitin is fiber from shrimp and crab shells! It's naturally antibacterial!"
Guess that sez it all.
