Alright I have got one of the legs sewn up already and I am working on the other one. I have again started by the fold kind of curved the stitch around. I am coming up the in seam. Just one little point I wanted to put in this clip is; just to make sure to make sure that when you get to this point that you are not stretching or pulling the sock to much because you see on if you use the special sock monkey socks or any socks that have a different kind of around the heel you just want to make sure that that edge matches up when you put that stitch there. So for example I don't want to sew it together like this you know like an eighth of an inch one way or the other cause then that stitch won't look good coming all the way around. I'm kind of at that point now. So I am just going to make sure that the whites aligned with the white and browns aligned with the brown so that the next couple of stitches I make that those get stitched down together where those two colors come together. And so that will make the leg look real nice. So that's really all I wanted to say in this clip and I am just going to continue going all the way up the in seam. Remember I am going to stop short from the end about an inch, I am only going to leave about an inch here so that I can turn it inside out again the correct way to stuff it. So alright I am right here at this split between the brown and the white and I am holding them together so that they are nice and lined up and once I am past that point I can quit stressing out about it and just keep going.
