Boreal Socks - Footies!

After finishing up my Tart Berries & Honey shawl I turned my attention to my languishing Boreal socks.  Although Bruce thinks my toe pockets are adorable, they are not exactly practical.  I also need to get these finished because the next shipment goes out next week.  So, I have successfully turned the heel with short rows.  I did not do the shadow wraps that everyone was raving about.  I tried them but I was getting holes, so I went back to the old wrap and turn, and got no holes.  Go figure.  I do like the shadow wrap technique, however, it is very cool, and I think it would be very good for shaping clothing (shoulders, darts, necklines...) so I am sure it will be getting used in the future.
