I've been so consumed with Ravelry that posting everywhere else has come second but I wanted to display me and the DD #2's Walking on the Wild Tide footies from STR Club '07. The original pattern is what my daughter's footies are knitted in. For mine I just used a rib pattern on the top of the foot. I really like this yarn and will definitely be buying some of this for future use. I have to admit that I hadn't been doing so well with the whole short row method but with my daughter's socks I came across http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/2mlsocks_heel.htm
and have felt more confident with the short-row method. I also knit my footies using the Magic Loop method from the toe up. I still have to work on getting my bind-off tension correct but overall I'm happy with both newly aquired techniques.
