Nothing special, I did these for the wife if a friend who was having a
birthday. They were out of town and I was housesitting so I found a pair of her shoes and used them for sizing. That's not creepy, is it? :-))

if you don't mind cables, this is a great hat. You can do them without a cable needle.

I'm a little confused by the terminology. It lists a "knit one front and back" as the same as a bar increase...? I know the bar as the yarn that runs between stitches, and a "make one" as pulling up that bar, twisting and knitting it (R or L as need be).

It's been quite a fall/early winter and I haven't been on much. At the end of September, I moved back to the US after 14 years in Turkey. I have been knitting here and there though,and as life settles down, I've slowly been getting back into old habits. :) Also enjoying some new ones!

A friend of mine from the East Black Sea recently opened a cafe. His mom is the one who made the Hemshin socks I posted several months ago. She's now selling some of her socks and working in the cafe, so I thought is show you some of them. (And I hope I can get her to explain how she does her heels--I pretty much see but I'd rather not get it wrong and have to frog back brought all that color work.)

So this is quite a screwup - I'd started a pair of socks for my friend Shakir way before going to the US, and got waylaid. I finally finished them up and took a picture of him wearing them but accidentally had the movie camera function on. So I stopped the film at a good point and did a screen shot and that's what you're seeing here and it's my excuse for the piss-poor quality of the photo and the white triangle in the middle! ;)
