Progress is beautiful

and so is this blue.

I've turned the heel on Sweetie's New Blue socks. As usual for me with sportweight socks, I started out with fewer stitches than I'd need further up the foot and had to increase on the way. But since I'm not using variegated yarn this time, no change-in-number-of-stitches pooling = no biggie. Although I really want to remember to cast on enough next time, even if it seems huge when I'm down by the toe.

Awww - these socks are going to be so beautiful! What an awesome blue you chose for it - it reminds me of summer, sun, the beach and most of all the ocean - yep, perfect indeed! Happy knitting!
