I do love these socks. They’re so comfy and despite the fact that the yarn is itty bitty – it does go miraculously quick. I never have good light when I’m taking pictures so I had to resort to my bathroom lights for this guy. The coloryway on this started to pool more on the foot which gives it some character. I will be casting on for it’s brother soon enough. I might actually try the "one-sock one color/next sock new color" method. These badboys are mine, but I might make my roomate a pair – if she’s lucky! I think the toughest part of making this sock is keeping the stitches on the needles. There were a few times when I went to slip two over one and lost it. Then I patiently had to pick it up and try it again.
I cannot wait to get the full pair rocking! Here’s a side view:
Last night I went to my first SnB meeting in Hoboken. I had such a fabulous time! I wasn’t sure what to expect. All the women were probably in their early 30s – to late 20s, some married, some single. We got into talking about our jobs, significant others, etc, and by the end of it I felt as if I knew these girls for more than just one night. We’re meeting bi-weekly, which makes me happy because I don’t know if I could wait another month for our next meeting.
All in all good things this week. Work’s been pretty nutty with decisions (i’m an admissions director) but the end is in sight. I have my sights on my February break… here I come Miami!
