Sox on Break

This pair is just past the heel and is now in the arch expansion area.

I practiced knitting the Continental knitting method and found that perhaps less slippery needles would be the way to practice this new way of knitting for me. Took more time to do a row than the English method. The difference between the two methods is the way the yarn is held. English method the yarn is held with the right hand and as you may have guessed Continental method the yarn is held with the left resulting in fewer motions to make a stitch.

Had a time trying to get the colors to turn out right - the dark charcoal had a greenish tint in the camera - but I think this may be less green.
