You know, I consider myself to be a reasonably intelligent woman. I can usually figure out what to leave as a tip, I keep up-to-date on current events, and yet, it never ceases to amaze me how much progress you can make on a project when you actually knit on it monogamously.
I finished the Rococo shawl this Friday, and as I wasn't ready to tackle either the second Conwy sock or the second oven-mitt (aka Citrus mitten), I cast on for a pair of socks. I've sort of fallen off the sock bandwagon lately, but as Phil's sock drawer is starting to be a bit depleted (3 pairs have bit the dust in the past month), I decided to suck it up and cast on for a pair of socks using the Crazy Zauberball sock yarn I picked up a few weeks ago. Just a plain, stockinette sock using a fun yarn. I'm calling them his Zaphod Beeblebrox socks. Catchy, ain't it?
So I cast these on during Émilie's skating class on Saturday morning, and I turned the heel on them last night while watching the Superbowl. 2 days, and already half a sock. Unbelievable. If you knit them, socks will come!
Happy Knitting Everyone!
