AHEAD OF SCHEDULE!!
That's right! I'm ahead of schedule. Our evening freed up tonight and I curled up on the couch and went to town on my sock and it is finished!!! I love the colors and the way it feels. I do wish I would have used one size smaller needles or cast on a few less stitches, but they will be GREAT! (Notice the 'they'...yes, I will get the second one made!)
I now have a pair of socks! They don't exactly match..... But it's a pair. I think that I will cast on the other purple sock tomorrow and do that one next. Hopefully then I'll be able to adapt the blue sock pattern to go onto my circulars.... Then I can get it's mate done as well...probably in less time than it took to do the first one. (I guess 6 1/2 months is a fairly easy time to beat!)
I thought Sumo might be interested in my accomplishment. He was already on his landing for the night, and had a hard time mustering up any sort of excitement.
So, I made him try them on. I thought for sure that would get him really excited.
I was wrong. Humiliations galore! He may be getting just a little tired of being the blog star! Or it could be just because it was past his bedtime. But his bedtime runs into his morning nap time which runs into his afternoon nap time which goes right back into his bedtime...so I can't win!!
Ok, Sheri. I'm a sock knitter. You were right. (Like always!) It is fun!!
Until next time.....
