Those plain vanilla, cotton-blend socks are my favorite kind of sock knitting. I have multiple pairs in my favorite yarns: Sockotta and Online (Summer and Beach colors).

My birds molted heavily this summer even with the central air conditioning (a necessity in these parts) running the way you run the heat in your winters. I wonder if the length of day has any influence on their molts?


Your forethought heel looks quite elegant. I tried that approach once, and it was really fun (and challenging). Alas, I seem to have flap-and-gusset feet; nothing else works so well.


Har, har. I'm glad you've come around to striped socks, self-striping yarn, and plain stockinette. There's nothing better for a travel project, or while watching tv, I think. I've not developed your enthusiasm for cotton/wool blend sock yarn, though. I had a bad experience with cotton/wool yarn and a sweater. Once I recover from that, maybe I'll try it. I know I don't like cotton/nylon sock yarn.
I like the forethought heel. I've been meaning to try one sometime. Here's another one that I'd like to try someday: Hat Heel Socks on Knitty.
Poor Addi, just looking at her makes me itch.


I never thought I'd say this, but I'm enjoying the cooler weather we're having after that hot summer!! Poor Addi. I like that method of sock construction. They look like they fit perfectly.

Poor little bird, she doesn't look a happy camper at all.
