Anyway, it was enough to finish Secret Sock #1. Yay! It looks pretty good, I think. There are a few glitches in the pattern, so mine doesn't look exactly like the Yarn Harlot version, but I think I'm the only one who'll notice. Also, following the instructions means you end up grafting the stitches in a line that's perpindicular to the toe of the sock. Weird, no? Again, I think I'm the only one who'll care. Also, I've learned something very important with Sock #1, and it is this: Boy socks are crazy HUGE! Holy cow, these things take FOREVER to knit.
Secret Sock #2 is now officially underway. It looks like this:
Not much, I know. I blame Mr. Right. Last night, after the Big Road Trip, we started mowing his lawn. No small task, since it's about a third of an acre, and he hadn't mowed it yet this year. So instead of knitting, I have this:
That's my sweetie with his Darth Vader mask (he's violently allergic to grass, and the last time he did the lawn without it, we almost ended up in the ER. Now he looks like a dork and everyone's healthy).
And now, I'm going to go guzzle some allergy medicine myself and collapse on my bed. When I wake up though, I'm going to go visit all the WIPW posts. I missed you guys last week!
