And we have gussets

I took these to knitting group in Lawrence yesterday and finished the second gusset. But I still don't think I'll be able to finish two feet and two toes in three days. But I like the socks, so entering them in the contest is really no big deal.

I do like one detail of these socks very much. I learned a new gusset corner trick. I've always picked up an extra stitch in the corner of the gusset, but this time, I decreased it away on the next round, tucking it UNDER the heel stitch instead of making it the first gusset stitch. The little gap is GONE like magic.
