is this what they call pooling? how come the first sock (on the left) came out so not-pooly? of course I am way past the point of no return, so pooly sock this will be. I think the bottom looks really cool, though. look at those stripes! rawr! it's like battlecat from he-man.
you know what slowed me down a great deal last night? so you think you can dance. is anyone else watching this show? I was hopelessly addicted to it last summer and now they've brought it back for another round of twirling and jumping and gyrating for my viewing enjoyment. it's way better than dancing with the stars. but I can't seem to watch and knit at the same time! I tried to time it so that I'd only be doing stockinette rows during the actual dancing, but I wasn't that successful. and the episode was two hours long too. gah!
anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed (not literally, tho, because that would definitely not be helpful) that these bad boys will be ready for gifting come sunday.
