Going round the gusset

I'm making decent progress on my Johnny-Jump-Up Undines.

Over the weekend I was able to finish the heel turn and I'm about halfway down the gusset now.

I find the foot always goes quicker than the leg for some reason, so I expect to be grafting the toe on these in the not-too-distant future. And I've promised myself that I won't wait forever to cast on for the second sock like I did with Sagittarius.

I'm actually itching to get this pair done, because there's another pair I want to get on the needles very soon. I just have to decide what I want to use for the main colour. And finish these ones up of course.

And don't forget. Today is the last day of our Easter Sale in the shop. Use the code EASTER15 and save 15% off your order.

I've noticed that too- I think it's the stockinette in the foot that helps make it go so quickly. And boy these are pretty- perfect Easter knitting!

Okay I'm not sure if the leg or the foot goes faster but you may be right about that. You know what takes FOREVER? The gusset. The damn gusset. I feel like I work a gusset for eternity. It's sad really because it implies that one bit of extra decreasing concentration effort takes a lot of effort for me apparently, ha! good thing I like sock knitting and don't care.
