i have been making amazing progress on sock #2! it gets me all excited about knitting with some other socks yarns held in captivity --- such as my mountain colors 'barefoot' yarn in shades of dark reddish colors, and my brown sheep wildfoot in shades of purples. i use to knit socks quite a bit, years ago, and i think i might have a renewed interest! i gaze at my sock, and almost sock, and imagine my feet propped up saying, "my! we are some HAPPY feet!"
