That is what the guy behind me at Starbucks ordered yesterday morning. That just fuckin cracks me up. I got outta there real fast and practically ran to work to write that one down. I thought I’d share.
These, people, are my finished Sockapal Socks. I am so happy I finished these babies. I wasn’t worried, but it’s like, okay, cool, 2 months to knit a pair of socks, no prob! I can do that with my eyes shut.
Then. Then, it’s WHAT? I only have 3 weeks to finish the 2nd sock!?! There’s no way! Oh, crap, I’ll be the only loser to not have socks to mail to my pal, 3 weeks, How did this happen!! What am I going to do?! I had 2 months!
Then you’re done and it’s all good, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Phew. What? You want photos? Sure!!
Want me to model them? Why not!
I took these at work today, can you tell? If you want people to really look at you sideways, try taking pictures of your own feet. Not so easy. Yeah. I was trying to hold the camera at a slight angel, so the shot wasn’t all floor, while holding a mirror behind the camera, so I could see the LCD sceen, so I could line my feet up properly, while trying my very best not to fall over. I didn’t.
Then I started a new pair! Now, I rarely, rarely keep my yarn for myself, I’m always tempted, but I restain. SweetWater though, I needed to knit with that color. I think I lurve it. I’m also knitting it with DPN’s instead of my usual magic loop. Just wanted to change it up.
That’s the Turkish cast on from VK fall 2005. I love this cast on. So neat. This is totally the way to go when knitting toe up. I know there’s also the figure 8 cast on, but having never done it, I can’t offer any thoughts on it. If you do this cast on with it, and short row heel, no kitchenering. Bonus! Even though I afterthought heel, and kitchener anyways….
So tomorrow, I will update Etsy, at around 2:30-3pm. Eastern Standard time. Packages will go out in Mondays’ mail, if there’s mail this Monday, I think there is. Then I’ll be dyeing this weekend, so maybe I’ll do another shop update in a week and a half or so. I’ll keep you updated here.
