Olympic Update

Even though I couldn't cast on my Olympic sock until Saturday**, I've made very good progress. I'm designing as I go... see?

I stopped at this point (just completed gusset decreases) because I haven't decided about the pattern on the foot. I'm leaning toward just stripes of the different colors. The socks would look really cool with more interesting patterns, but that just doesn't seem as practical.

I know you're dying to see the inside, aren't you?

I'm planning to pick up the stitches at the top of the cuff and knit the ribbing after completing the foot. I'm working up my nerve to do corugated ribbing.

**I procrastinated the dyeing, and had to wait for the yarn to dry before casting on!

awesome socks. I am envious. I have only done a little bit of colorwork on a hat once. Don't know if I could hang in there on a pair of socks but intend to try sometime this year...
