Once I sent off a package of socks to Wool-Aid, I started another pair. That's how it goes.
Somehow I ended up doing another grey pair. I'm not sure how that happened!
Aaannyywwaayy, I got the first sock done in pretty quick order. But then the second sock.
I don't know if it is because I have gotten used to working two at a time, but this second sock has not been smooth sailing.
I was working on it at a friend's while we were all chatting after Thanksgiving dinner when I looked down and actually looked at what I was doing. I was almost done the heel and I had forgotten to add the reinforcing sock yarn. So rip, rip, rip that went while we were sitting there. Either I looked confident or no one cared, but no one asked why I took the needle out and ripped the sock back a couple of inches.
Then when I finished the heel (at the same dinner party, maybe?), I started the 2x2 ribbing on the leg.
Then I remembered that I had to add two stitches to the first sock after the heel so that the total number of stitches would evenly divide by four and I could do a 2x2 rib. So last night I ripped the leg out and reknit about half of it during small group. Now I think I am in for some clear sailing to the end.
Knock knock on wood and throw some salt over my shoulder.
