The Tipping Point

Picture yourself, tanned and toned -- come on use your imagination -- at the edge of the pool.  Toes curled around the pool lip, contemplating a dive into the icy water.  Lean forward, pull back, lean forward, pull back, lean forward.  There's a point, if you lean past the point you're committed, committed to diving into the icy pool.  A point of no return.  A point of commitment.  The tipping point.

A sock has a tipping point.  The point when the knitting commits itself to becoming a sock.  Now picture yourself, tanned and toned, sitting by the pool knitting a beautiful tube.  A tube filled with possibilities.  A cuff?  A glove?  A sock?  You lean forward and bam you're over the tipping point -- the heel flap, heel turn, and gusset.  The tube of possibilities is a sock -- done deal.  Still beautiful, but now predictable.


The "Go With the Flow" tube is now a sock

great coloured sock! I must get knitting on some more asap - My DH says I can't buy anymore wool until I've used some of my stash!

I almost made my last sock into a beer cozy. It's ok...it was the weekend of debauchery at my place. Suffice it to say...it's now has a heel so sock it is. Yours looks great, too!
