Halfway there...

I am halfway through my red, white, and black socks. I think I am finally getting better at sizing socks...I am making them a little smaller so they hug my feet better. It also helps that the cuff and the top of the foot are k3p1 rib. I have to say that I just ADORE the peasant heel with self-striping sock yarn. This is my third pair of striped socks and I just haven't been happy with the way the heels look (one was a heel flap and one was short row), but the symmetry around the heel delights me!!

In other "knitting knews," I finished knitting the candle flame shawl. All that remains is weaving in ends and blocking. Oh, technically, I still have to weave in ends on the above sock to be officially halfway.
