Advice on short-row heels? What's your favourite method?

Well, I've spent almost all of my summer on this one sock, which for various reasons-the FIFA World Cup being a distracting culprit-has been done and redone many times.

What could it be?

Hello gents. I am currently finishing up a project which I'll post more about in a few days. In the meantime, I took some pictures of the in-progress item which looks so weird that I had to share it. Any guesses on what it is I'm making?

Movie

I'm at present watching "Jane Austen Book Club". Good Movie, but what I'm telling the group for is that Kathy Baker is knitting a few items throughout the whole movie and it just made me smile!

A Pair of Beanies

Amid all my family upheaval, I have managed to finish two matching hats from some superwash merino wool that a friend of my gave me. Thanks, Lou! The hank was 280 yards/4oz, 5-6 sts/in on US 4 & 5. They turned out well and will make wonderful Christmas gifts.
