Ernie Sox

How do ya like my knitting basket?
Bought him the other day while we were at the grocery store.
You know I'll do anything to postpone serious grocery shopping.

Anyhoo, I've made
Concentrated Progress 

Cookie A's Sock Club Ernie Sox
For Hubby, of course.

Oh! Thought I'd show you the inside of the heels
that are worked with a slip stitch
that seems to
reinforce the heel somewhat

*  *  *  *
In the couple of hours since I took these pics
the heel turns are completed

and, I'm just beginning the gusset section before reaching the foot.
-  -  -
I'm hoping to finish this pair before too many days pass.
It's a fairly easy eight row repeat with 
every other heel row decreases.
