Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Lizzy Update

I love they way this sock is working up. It is an interesting and different look to have the purl stitches on the outside. And the pattern is worked all the way down the heel. I did switch to dpns US 1 1/2 to make the foot a little tighter. (they don't make 9" circulars in US 1 1/2)
The heel turn was a little tricky. I wasn't sure I understood the directions for the heel turn. It just didn't work out right. So I did the usual heel turn but kept the purl stitches on the outside.

And it was different where the gusset decreases are placed. I love it! It is something new and different to add to my bag of tricks.

And did I mention I'm liking the color orange now? Well, at least this color of orange. Onward... to the foot.
