This is what we were doing while watching the Oscars. I am already more than halfway done with the other sock now and so excited to have a pair soon! It will be the first thing i’ve knitted and kept for myself! (Of course, i don’t think they would FIT anyone else. They’re a bit tight on me.) And Maiya is knitting a SWEATER!! She went straight from hats to a sweater and she’s almost done. This was the sweater she started before learning hats…the sweater that’s taken about a year to get this far….but that’s ok! That’s a bigger attempt than i dare to make yet….although i’m getting really close to being that confident.

This is what my sock looked like before lunch today. And before watching a video online about how to do the Kitchener stitch. And yes, i did wear it around the office like this, with the needles still attached. I’m quite proud, you see.
And the bottom 2 pictures are the whole sock finished tonight, after weaving in ends and wearing it around the house, showing it off to Mike and Emmet.
So now i have to start ANOTHER! Sigh…..i wish the human race was only made with one foot. But on the up-side, it should go MUCH quicker than the first, now that i know what i’m doing!

Is this the most gorgeous unfinished sock you’ve ever seen?? I think i’m getting the hang of this! I finally figured out the gusset. Then the rest is easy but slow-going in my case. But we’re almost there! Almost to the part where it tells me to start the toe..i think i have another inch to go before that happens. I am getting quite excited but i have a nervous little voice inside telling me it doesn’t fit. This voice would never have spoken up if i hadn’t actually stuck my foot in the sock and seen for myself that it didn’t seem to fit. But i will keep telling myself it’s because i tried it on with the needles in it. Yeah, that must be it. I’m sure it will fit when the needles come out….right?
