Here it is close-up. On the left is the bottom of the foot, which I knit in stockinette. At the bottom of the picture is where I turned the heel. When I did the gusset decreases, I used the heel-stitch pattern. I really liked using this along the gussets, as well. My heels are pretty narrow, and the heel-stitch drew in the sock along that side. When I wear it, it ends up fitting quite well.
Here is the shaping at the top of the sock. As you can see, I haven't woven in the ends. I used the twisted stitch in the middle to mark the seam. In the future, I'll avoid using a twisted stitch in the middle, since it seems to veer to one side. I might, though, use the twisted stitches along the beginning of the ribbing, to hold it in place better. I took this picture along my arm, so it will be significantly more stretched than it is right now. Hopefully a good wash will straighten this up, too.This is my very first knit for a baby! It's Elizabeth Zimmermann's February Sweater from Knitter's Almanac. This is a book that I highly, highly recommend. The sweater was very fun to make. I did have some gauge issues, as you can see on the yoke. It's knit in Knitpicks Shine Sport in Grass, which was very fun to use, on Inox size 4 needles. I needed just under 2 skeins for it, and it took just under a weekend.
This is the Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop. Again, I used Shine Sport. I still need to find buttons to use for this. I did 4-row stripes with both the white and the green, and I really like the wrong side. The stripes merge together and create a variegated look. The other side is more crisp, and is clearly striped.
The Shine Sport knits up beautifully and is quite soft. I'm thinking about making myself a picovili in this.
