Fine, I'll Knit the Damn Sock...
This sock-in-progress has been stashed away in a little project bag since last winter. It's my first attempt at fingerling weight socks. As you might have guessed, progress hasn't gone like I had hoped.
Today after pondering what to do with it...finish or frog...I decided to pull it out and rip, rip, rip. Only I had incorrectly remembered just how far I had already knit...6 of the 8 inches at which point I can start the heel.
So even though there are a couple of mistakes really close to the beginning of the cuff, and even though I feel like I will never actually finish a PAIR of these...I can't bring myself to rip it out. And before I allow myself to order yarn for those darn SpillyJane mittens that I can't get out of my head, I've told myself I have to finish at least one project with the fingerling weight yarn that I have already purchased.
So fine...I'll knit the damn socks. And if I'm lucky I might get them done before the end of sock wearing season. And THEN I'm ordering mitten yarn...mark my words!
