Socks and shower rooms

The builders are in.  There's a lot of banging, sawing, drilling and a bit of singing.  After probably years of things in the shower room and the bathroom only half working, we decided that we really needed to do something about it.  

I hate the disruption but I have things to keep me sane - the sock bug has a firm grip on me at the moment.  As a novice knitter I never thought I would be capable of such things and I never thought there would be so many ways of constructing a sock:  rounded toes, whirlwind toes, German short row heels, heel and gusset, fish lips kiss heels (yes it's true!) and, no doubt, many more I've yet to discover.  Every time I knit a pair I learn something new, like Kitchener stitch (a way of grafting stitches together to make a seamless join) is best not attempted by a confused person like me.  For the moment I'm sticking to whirlwinds and fish lips kisses. 

Hope all is well out there ...
