Sock Progress: SockTwo Grows [Feb. 22nd, 2012|02:17 pm]

While at the FYE Conference in San Antonio over the weekend, I had enough waiting time and time between things to knit...and I met some other knitters, too.    When I arrived, Sock Two was less than half the length of Sock One.   I worked on Sock Two only for the weekend,  and now Sock Two's cuff is markedly longer: 

   
Sock Two is on the left in both pictures; Sock One is the same in both pictures.

After a rough start with them (losing stitches off the points),  both the steel needles and working in a square and not a triangle are now familiar and comfortable.    If I had more sets of the right size, I might be tempted to start yet another pair.  The cuff of Sock Two progressed faster and with fewer (not yet no!) mistakes than the cuff of Sock One.

Great progress. Those are going to be really nice socks.

The nice thing about working in a square is that a lot of patterns work on multiples of 4, and having the stitches on 4 needles makes it easier to do the math. (Not that knitting math is particularly hard.)

OT for knitting, but...

I just finished re-reading the Familias Regnant series, and this time around I've got YouTube to help me learn the proper tune for that wonderful lyric you included in the last few pages of Against the Odds.

Yes, i am a filker.

They're looking great!

I still haven't ventured into sock-making, so I am very impressed.
