The Power of Perfect Gussets!

Who knew that working heels and gussets could be so satisfying!  These are not perfect gussets but they are workable and were very fun to create!   Practice, practice, practice will eventually make perfect!

"Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either."  Elizabeth Zimmermann



  1. It's pretty fun when you discover that just by the way you hook yarn around some sticks you can create something to wear isn't it? Your socks are looking good!

  2. Good point, Jane. Just think of those beautiful fair isle sweaters made only with sticks and yarn!

  3. your sock looks wonderful!!! Nice work!! I sure have been practicing too lately...wish my result was on the right track though..but I'll keep at it as you say, practice, practice, practice.

  4. Excellent progress there Sandy! Knitting would trouble my spirit - I get totally agitated! So proud of folks who can do handcrafts like this and actually find it relaxing!Have a lovely week-end!

  5. Knitting and faith in Christ, you are speaking my language! So glad I found you through Karin!! Blessings, Deb
