The other thing I did the other day was finish up two first socks which meant that there was only one sock ready to knit at the drop of a hat. This is almost an unbearable stress.
Socks have always been my go to, tag along project, my don't feel like doing anything else and I have time to knit project, my everything I worked on today has a problem projects. I need more socks on the needles. Clearly. Besides, one sock of each of two different pair, does not a wearable pair make, not when one is sized for a twenty year old with slender feet and my feet are very much older, wider and stumpier.
Yesterday at while waiting for an appointment, I started the first of two toes. Today, I finished it and did the other.
As you can see, this is a dark tale.
I needed something light. Plus, I had all these needles open, waiting to be used.
So, I took care of that and pulled up the box of sock yarns. And then I knit.
It's Arne and Carlos Regia Design Line which I picked up in Vernon at Twist of Yarn last summer. I was having so much fun, that I had to force myself to stop.
A striped yarn has an awful powerful spell. A knitter must stay aware to the danger of knitting a whole sock just to watch the yarn.
And that is the tale of two toes. Well three, if you are counting.
