I had a pretty busy weekend. From my last post, I finished sock #1, so halfway done. I tried to get to my heel of sock 2, but sadly failed. to give myself credit, I did start the sock yesterday, so getting to the heel would have been an all day knit-a-thon. I did make lots of progress on sock 2, almost halfway to the heel.
The hard part of taking pics of your own foot is the angle is always off. So you get to see my view of the socks.
They aren't very long. I don't like socks up my calf. I don't like them just to the top of my ankle, either. So I guess I like the 3/4 crew sock. I did have to rip out the bind off, since, silly me, I did a plain ol bind off. Yeah. I cold not get the sock around my heel. I was afraid I was going to break the sock. So I took the bind off out, ripped back 2 rows, and proceeded to do the bind off I found here. I liked it better than the EZ sewn bind off, since then I would have to reposition my stitches on the needles, and it seemed like to much of a hassle. I decided to not make a ribbed cuff, since the pattern is a rib. Redundant. Well, we'll see if they fall down all the time.
Here's a pic of the 2 socks for comparison:
It isn't the best pic, but it is the prettiest one I took! I may have to get a better camera.
In other news, I did work tons on my scarf. Not quite there yet, but soon. I think I will be done with these projects soon, but who knows?
I have to go school my kids now. Have a great day!
