Let's talk about socks. Last year I decided I was just going to learn how to knit socks. I knit my first pair and was so excited, bought a bunch of sock yarn and started right in on another pair! Somewhere along the way hit a little wall. Ummm, I started this sock in October (!) and finished it Thursday night. In my defense, there were some holidays in there.....ugggggg, it's useless - I got distracted! That's why I'm calling these the longest socks in the world because it's taking me for-ever!
Isn't it pretty, though? It's a bit bigger than my foot as it is a gift. I may have to re-do the bind off because it is verrrrry hard to get around the heel. I did an extra stretchy bind off but I tend to tug my yarn after a stitch to tighten it which is from making bunnies and softies. You don't want the stuffing to show through.
Well, I was encouraged that I finished one sock and dove right into the second one. This is what I have so far. It's weird, I did the same toe up cast on and same amount of stitches on the toe but this one has a different shape? IDK but I'm just going with it :) I did also add 2 stitches hoping that because I think I must've done that on the first one to get the pattern right around the ankle/leg part once the pattern goes all the way around. On the foot part I only do the pattern stitch on one side.I caught Joey snoozing so deeply yesterday. He snores so it's extra cute.
this one seemed easy and accommodating to what I wanted.
It was a gorgeous day today, and even though I was inside sewing I had the windows and door open and listened to Hunger Games on CD. V.nice.
