... and one may wonder why these socks languished on the needles ... this is why ...

when i went to knitting thursday night, all i had left on my sock was the toe decreases. i was even partially through them already. when i finished the decreases, i tried my sock on, with the needles still attached on the last round. UGH. they didn't fit! the foot was just a wee bit too short ... just enough to bother me. so, i ripped back and knitted the foot about 3 rounds longer before starting the decreases again.

when i packed up to go home, i was in the same place on my sock as when i arrived. when i got home, i sat down and finished the sock. and it fit. and i wore them to work the next day, and slept in them last night. so, the picture is of how i look in the morning, fresh from bed, with pj's, socks, and birks.

and when a knitter finishes one pair or socks, what's a knitter to do? hmmm ....


why, cast on for another pair! stealth socks !
