I've turned the heel and am working towards the toe. I'm worried that the heel is a little loose for the intended recipient. But not worried enough to rip it out and re-do it.
Someone saw me knitting these and wanted to chat about knitting. She asked what I was knitting. "Socks." Oh, but what kind of socks -- slippers? bed socks? "Just regular socks." Well, what was I planning to put on the bottom/soles? Wasn't I worried that the wearer would slip while wearing them? No, the wearer will have shoes on over them ... because they're SOCKS, like you put on your feet right before your shoes. The conversation went on and on and on this way. Very surreal.
Other things we're working on:
Helping the neighbor cut down her Black Spruce (so far the lower branches are chopped off and hauled away),
Doing the splits.
