Some Days Later . . .
I spent all weekend and I mean ALL WEEKEND working on this sock. I did 8 inches of ribbing on the top and then stockinette stitch on the foot. Pretty simple pattern but 8 inches of ribbing on a size 1 needle for me goes v.e.r.y. s.l.o.w. I've got the sore hands to prove it. My oldest son was home all weekend with me watching movies and he would look over at my progress (or lack thereof) perodically and say "that's all you've gotten done?" He would tell me how long I had been sitting here and tell me it doesn't look like much. He's out of town on a class trip (Disney World) now. Won't he be disappointed he wasn't here for the finale of the sock? No? Oh but just in case he feels like he is missing something, I have started sock 2 and I have about 1 1/2 inches of ribbing completed. I know the striping isn't going to match up, but I think with the color variations being the same, I think it will be quite unique and well . . . me! It's going to be another slow process but since husband and oldest son are gone (Disney World) I'm sittin and knittin! They think I'm not having fun ha! I am! I'm knitting! Socks! Now my other 2 boys --- JEALOUS! I told them they could knit socks with me and for some reason that just didn't seem to make them feel better. Things make you go hmmm? I am still looking for the perfect pair of shoes to show all my socks off, but haven't found them yet. But, I'm on a mission!
