mom: what are you doing?
me: knitting (duh!).
mom: are you working on my socks ?
mom: are you making another orphan ?
me: ummm ... maybe ....
i am trying to be good. it's not easy. i guess that's why they call it virtue. my goal this morning was to finish this sock. well, that's not going to happen until tonight.
i want to get this pair finished before the end of the month, as this sock(s) is my submission for socktopia. i'm using two different shades of koigu, a variegated and a semi-solid. i don't know the color numbers for either, as i've either A. lost the labels or B. can't read the numbers on the labels. i don't mind having leftovers in koigu either, as i think the leftovers would be great for some future gloves or motifs for a blankie.
oh, the theme for these socks is "short & sweet". they're not exactly short, but they're certainly sweet (i could say they're short because they're not knee-hi and koigu has crappy yardage).
sock specs: 64 sts, us size 1 1/2 needles (knitpicks dpns), koigu (2 variegated, 1 semi-solid for cuff, heels, and toes), 2 x 2 rib cuff, and an eyelet rib for the body.
