Not a lot of knitting going on here although when I was outside with the kiddos on Easter I turned the heel on my lacy socks(or as I call them, the funeral socks). I'm trying a short row heel--it looks okay, we'll see how it fits. I have a question for all of my knitting crew, why am I having so many problems with my straight versus circular knitting? I don't know if you can tell by the picture but the heel looks larger than the rest of the sock, gauge wise. I know that I tend to purl looser than I knit and I think that's the root of the problem. Anyone else have it? If so, what do you do to fix it?

Magic Witch is 20% done--sounds great unfortunately I'm behind on my goals for the month. By next Thursday I need to be at 10800 in order to meet my minimum goal--so that would require 550 stitches per day and as I am heading back into the dreaded "book" zone I just don't see that happening, I suppose I could cheat and start working somewhere else in order to catch up--hmmmmm ;) Despite the crazy schedule I'm trying to tie myself to with this, I am really enjoying stitching it. I think it is fascinating how many colors are used to get the depth in the piece--I spend my evenings stitching with my face pressed up to the fabric so it just looks like a jumble of colors to me--BUT when I come back in the morning the design really pops, that's what makes it fun for me :)
