Yes, it is white in Michigan again. Thank goodness....I had gotten quite disgusted with the brown/gray look of everything in sight, and way too much rain. This is winter, folks....let the landscape be covered in white, please!
I started this pair of socks on Thursday. Got enough done (past the toe increases) so that when I went to sit 'n knit with the BeeGees that night I could do so without counting ...just knit around and around. I knit for a short time on them on Friday, didn't touch them Saturday. I spent a good amount of time knitting Sunday during the pregame and Super Bowl (I figure I knit pretty close to 7,000 stitches on Sunday) and spent several more hours on them on Monday. So in 5 days (only 4 knitting days) I have a pair of socks. I am impressed with myself, let me tell you! And the best part, they actually fit! This has not been an easy thing for me to accomplish. Every time I make socks, I am so afraid they will be too small that I make them too big. These fit great. I did a short row heel for the first time and got it to work after frogging the first attempt. I hadn't knit quite enough length in the foot. Nice thing about toe-up socks...you can try them on and see how they're fitting.
I wish this picture had turned out a little better. The sun left before I got a good shot. I'll replace it when I get a better one (after the socks have been washed and don't have fold marks in them!)
