Tiger II ~ Rolling Along

This is my favorite part of knitting a sock. (well, besides finishing it, of course) Where decreasing for the gusset begins. I like that point where I'm halfway across the instep, and all four needles are in full use, and I'm on a 'knit even' row. The scary picking up of the stitches part is over (my least favorite part of sock knitting) The high-concentration heel turning, while exciting, is over. The sock is well and truly underway and it's straight-ahead from here.

Thanks, Leah. Yeah, I liked all the rainforest patterns, but this one was my absolute favorite. Although the zebra was pretty tempting, too. And the owl. And... well, they were all great.

(word verification word for today is "fanyha" ...lol.... Psuedo-definition: The feeling of euphoria that overcomes a person after finishing a gusset decrease.)
