Sock Progress

Well – I am strarting to see some pretty good progress on the sock I have made it past the heal – of course now I am a bit stuck on the guesset part – the pattern wants me to pick up and knit 13 sts on the left side of the heal – I think I get this – I am thinking that it is the same as when I picked up and knit for the collar on the cardi I did … and advise would be appreciated – in the mean time here are a few pictures of my progress:

This picture is a little dark so he is another of just the heal:

Current Sweater Project:

I found the cutest patern for a baby pullover – here is a picture (finished from the magizine):

I found a great lavender it is LB homespun I started Monday night I have the front and back done I just need to work on the arms – WIP picture:

The knitting is fast on this sweater becuase first of all it is a baby sweater (so there is not much to it) and secondly, I am using #10.5 needles … There are two problems I can see with this sweater. 1. I now have to learn to crochet to be able to add the VERY cute flowers … 2. I am having a problem understanding how do the sleeves, they want you to pick up and knit the sleeves right to the sides of the sweater? I get the pick up and knit part but they only want you to pick up 20 st but the pattern says to put makers 5″ down on each side of the shoulder seam … I think I am going to have to think about this one for a little before I try and knit the sleeves …

… and for any one interested there is a close up of the pattern.
