Progress and Not-So-Much Progress

Through tenacity, dedication, and bribery, I have finished 9 1/2 swoopies:
2 1/2 swoopies left. This was on my list as the knitting project to finish for June, but that would be a lot of swoopies in 2 days. I'm just not sure even a box full of merino would be sufficient bribery for that sort of torture....

Hibiscus for Hope progressed all the way to the short-row heel, which looks fabulous until
Unstretched, it's about an inch too long for my insanely-pale foot.

Some frogging will be occurring this evening. Luckily, it's so far off that I think I can eliminate an entire pattern repeat, which would mean the least amount of frogging and pattern editing. Or I can find a woman with feet 2 inches longer than mine.....

I wear a size 11 - would your sock fit me?!? I love pink.

If you wear sandals while you garden, your white feet will become striped. It's my summer signature.

Congrats on swoopie progress. Hang in there! You can do it!

Oh My. That cape just looks more and more beautiful every time I see it. You are SO close to finishing it up. A definite heirloom.

As for Hibiscus for Hope, how about Size 9? Can I have 'em, pretty please? :)
