Oh my what is this? Is this an actual post!? About something relevant?! Yes. Hi, me again. This is a sock that I just finished this morning.
I actually finished the knitting last night while watching two hours of Craft in America, but for some reason was incapable of doing the kitchener stitch. That silly little stitch gets me every time; is it me, or does it just feel counterintuative?. I seem unable to commit it to memory, and have to reread the instructions for each stitch. Last night I did it wrong twice, then tried something "new" [something that I will not share since the idea was so terrible and cost me several rows that needed reknitting with a dropped stitch every few stitches] and then finally gave up until this morning. Shoot. But the sock is done and I am debating whether I want to make the second. I don't know that I will wear these, and while I like the pattern, the fit is rather "slouchy". And I am not in love with the yarn [this is my last variegated yarn project- why do I keep buying these when I never love how they come out?].
So that is the lovely sock that took months at best. It is not "the sock" to which my knitting group remembers as the one that took a year to knit. As in, "are you still working on the sock?" This was also my first lace project and I feel now comfortable with the whole YO thing to which I was previously terrified.
It bugs me a bit to just have one of a pair so I might just be the type to cast on #2 anyway...
