The pair of socks has just been finished!
The kitchener stitch again befuddled me more than I expected it to. I think I need to get some expert instruction in how to do it, but I was so impatient to finish these and be able to put them both on at once that I just pushed on.
They are like a walking foot massage! They hug, nay they embrace my feet! They feel almost alive!
For some reason the colors didn't line up the same on both feet, even though the leg portions did (perhaps because I did the decreases correctly on the second sock. :-/ )
But no matter. I love them. My very first pair of socks, off the needles and on my feet! Weeee!
I ordered some light green mildly variegated sock yarn on etsy.com and expected to receive it by today but I just got a note from the dyer saying she was so sorry to be late, but she was recovering from abdominal surgery. Oh. Okay! I think I will wait till Kristen actually gets home to try to knit it into socks for her.
Can't wait for this to arrive!
But all this means that I am project-less at the moment. What to do, what to do? A washcloth? A scarf? Some other socks? Fingerless gloves? Stay tuned! :-)
