Fixing the problem

I took out about 20 rows and knit them in the toe yarn, so I think it will work.
So now I am at the part where I start the heel.

I was flying along on my next Basketweave socks when I got to the place where I do the foot increases, then everything went haywire. The rows that were going around so nicely, turned into blocks of migrating color. You would thing I would stop before I knitted 20 something rows, but I just kept on knitting. Now I have had to stop and rip back to the increase rows, and try to figure out what to do next.

My Swap Package

I belong to the Lion Brand Swaps forum on Ravelry and we recently had a Winter Wonderland swap.  My partner sent me the following swap package.
It is a wonderful package. I have been wanting tip protectors and stitch markers for a long time, but have been too cheap to buy them. Just look at all the wonderful things in the package. She crocheted a little bag and stuffed it full of goodies.
I just love everything, row counters, yarn sleeves, buttons, cable needles, pom-pom maker, portable scissors, needle protectors, a little bag of buttons and needles, wow!
There were skeins of yarn, Debbie Bliss Riva, Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed, Lion Brand Amazing and Wisdom Yarns Poems.
A pair of mittens with a hand crocheted flower.
Stitch Markers
A loom and hook

A knitting gauge
A hand stitched bag filled with wonderful edible goodies! The little bag has coffee cups on it.
And this beautiful hand crocheted scarf. I love the color. A great big thank you to my swap partner.
