scrump-diddly-umptious yarn + boring day at work = half a sock! and a hole right there, where I totally picked up stitches way messily. I'll be sure to do a better job on sock #2. I've "turned the heel" (sock-lingo! look at me, all pretending I know what I'm talking about), but I'm not sure how I feel about this heel flap method. I think I like the way that short row heels look better. but, this being my first sock, and thus, a learning experience, I decided to just follow the pattern as closely as possible. I'll have to attempt the short row heel on the next pair. I mean, I need to finish this sock. and not think about other socks. right.
anyway, I think this thick yarn (artyarns supermerino) makes things go by really quickly, which is making this just fly by! exciting! only 44 st cast on. it may be challenging to ignore it and work on the cardi tonight. but, actually, I'm quite enjoying the cardi as well. yum... all is well in the land of knitting... two enjoyable projects at once! I'd forgotten what it felt like! I feel like pushing my chair back from my desk and spinning around with my arms and legs out, throwing my head back and going "wheeeee!!!" would this be proper workplace etiquette? think anyone will notice? should I close my door first? and what kind of music should I play?
