2011 - Thing a Week - Week 36 - More Socks!

I love these! I knit them at a much denser gauge than the last pair and they are wonderful. I just walked around on the tile in the kitchen and I couldn't feel the stitches like with the last pair. I'm glad I like them since I bought a bunch of sock yarn at the store closing sale. Hopefully I'll finish the others sooner.

My Ravelry project page is here. I started these back in June! Really I worked on the first one for most of that time (knit half and realized it was too loose; knit 3/4 and realized it was too small) in between other projects, and knit the second sock in less than a week. Knitters know of Second Sock Syndrome, where you knit the first sock quickly and the second languishes, but apparently I work oppositely. (Oppositely's a word? I thought I was making that up!)
Cozy toes.


  1. Someday I will knit a sock. *sigh*

  2. Lace - Have you started one? Once a pair is on the needles I find I will just grab it when I have short time to knit. It's small and easily portable, and since the two pairs I've knit are mostly stockinette they're really easy to pick up and put down.
