OK! I give up! I have abandoned the SOB sock! I have talked with and received some excellent advice from others as well as some excellent sites to refer to. I just haven't been able to conquer the SOB sock. My last attempt resulted in broken thread. That did it. The heel flap is not the's what comes after. I have decided that my skill level is just not there yet.

I need to work on some other projects. I have actually finished a dishrag, which I tried to knit up 6 months ago and had trouble with. I gave it to my sister to take back with her to Florida. She came in for a quick visit over the Labor Day holiday and said she had one that she had received from someone and used it until it fell apart....she really liked it. So I knit one quickly in a day for her. I am actully working on another and will send her a few in the mail. She also wanted me to knit her a wrap. Living in Florida that's all she sometimes needs for warmth. Since Ragged and I had planned a little shopping spree at the LYS (there was a sale going on!), I purchased some lovely Berroco Cotton Twist in the shade Gravel. It has a pretty little shiney thread running through it. I can't wait to get started. I also purchased some Addi's! So, when I attempt to conquer the SOB I will prevail!

Maybe we should have ceremoniously buried the SOB sock and started anew with your pretty pink striped yarn.
