Pattern: Traveller's Socks designed by Nancy Bush from "Knitting on the Road"
Definitely love all the details of the design. The travelling stitches are lovely and appear to be complicated. I started with US0 and it turned out to be too small. When I started again with US1, I was already able to knit the pattern without referring to the charts again.
Have you noticed that I made the heel flaps? Interestingly enough, after knitting on the FPS for almost 2 months, I think I am doing a lot better with picking up stitches for heel flaps. Besides, I now, finally, understand that it doesn't really matter if you pick up 17 stitches (as instructed in the pattern) or 19 stitches along the flap ... as long as you keep decreasing back to the number of stitches for the foot. Not being able to pick up the exact number of stitches was what had been bugging me about the heel flaps. Silly, huh?

I bought these Elann yarns a long long time ago. I thought it was time to use up these in the stash. They are nice and comfortable.

On a non-knitting note, did you watch the new Discovery series, Planet Earth? Watch it on HD channel if it's available ... simply amazing!
