I cast on for the second sock one day about two weeks ago. Yikes, has it been that long? I hadn’t thought about that until now. But oh well, I have said it over and over, I am the slowest knitter in the world.
I’m nearly done with the foot and am about to start the short row heel. I would like to say that I’m not going to make it look as funny as the first one I did, but you never know. I don’t actually know what I’m doing yet with this whole sock knitting business.
I want to get this second sock done. I am anxious to knit a real sock, with my Socks that Rock yarn that I got at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I even joined the Summer of Socks, 2008 (hey, that chick uses the Mandigo theme, too!), as I think I am going to be knitting lots of socks by the pool this summer. They’re really quite portable. I’m finding after doing a couple of blankets in a row, that portability, is, indeed, a good quality.
Speaking of blankets, I’m having a bit of blanket guilt over a certain brown ripple afghan. More on that project this weekend, K?
Ciao for now.
