So now I'm knitting a llama for a friend. She got wind of the alpaca I made last week, and now she wants her own ruminant. I should start advertising soon.
In other news, I finally got past the gusset on fair isle sock #2, and while I still think I may have messed it up a bit, it's close enough. In retrospect, I think the salt-and-pepper heel was more trouble than it was worth. Next time, I think I will definitely do heel stitch, too. The plain stockinette version doesn't scrunch up at all, which leaves you either with a heel flap that's too long or a 3-stitch gusset on either side that's difficult to get your foot through.
I think I will fix my toe-up sock after I finish the fair isles to get that out of the way. Then the Columbine Peak socks, then the entrelac socks that I can't seem to get into my head in a satisfactory manner. Or perhaps the entrelac sock will simply be an "art" sock, without a buddy.
