You Spin Me.

i just finished the RPM socks from knitty.com. I used all the methods I've never tried before, to make it more exciting (i.e. short-row heel, and the pointed toe). I ended up frogging the heel like, 7 times, but in the long run it was totally worth it.

i actually had enough yarn to make the a lil' longer but i was afraid of coming up short.

I love those socks! Short row is how I first learned to do heel, but I did have to unravel a couple times to get it right.
