So, I haven't gotten much knitting done in the past two weeks or so, but I do have a little bit of progress to share. I've been working on the Conwy pattern from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road. It's a really fun and pretty quick knit.

The pattern is knit cuff down, rather than toe-up like the last sock pattern I knit (Falling Leaves). I'm glad I've tried both ways, because now I know that I like cuff-down socks a lot more. Short-row heels and toes really do a number on my wrists, which would be fine if the final results were really attractive . . . as it turns out, though, I think heel flaps look and fit far better than short row heels do. I've finished one sock out of the pair, but I misread the instructions for decreasing for the toe and ended up with a ridiculously pointy toe as a result. It'll have to be redone sometime today. Bah.

ETA: The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, Black Watch colorway.

Here are some progress pics. Click for larger pictures. Sorry for the poor quality of the first one . . .
