Long trip, much knit!

Would have been more, but ran out of toted yarn for this project- a sweater for Bitbot

and now I am madly making socks. Yule socks for Mr. Constructobot were completed, and shall be posted. But seeing those deliciously pink swirly confections made Constructobot long for her own feet to be covered.... in stripes! Note clever addition of sewing thread for heel reinforcement. We'll see how well it works. These are also experiments in toe-up short row toe and heel construction. There has been considerable scheming on the merits of afterthought heels, but that will come later.
