So, I've been away for a very long time!! I've been KNITTING!! Not much paper crafting going on here but LOTS and LOTS of socks! I joined a yahoo group that knits 6 pair of socks a year and my first KAL (that's Knit A Long) was a pair of TOO CUTE socks, Hug ME that can be found on Ravelry.com. I designed a Baby Hug Me Sock and can't figure out how to "publish" it as per thier requirements so here it is! Baby Hug Me Socks

Pick up 7 stitches on side of heel flap with needle 1. Knit across instep putting all 18 stitches onto needle 2. On Needle 3 pick up 7 stitches on side of heel flap and across 6 heel stitches. Knit next 6 heel stitches onto Needle 1 and knit to last 3 stitches on same needle. K2tog, K1. Knit in pattern across instep. K1, SSK, knit to end of row on Needle 3.
