Day 11


This photo is really a lie, because I've been wearing this sweater for two days now - I just haven't gotten a picture of myself in it yet. I'll post all the F.O. specs. once I have that picture.

Fug Progress

I completed the first sock yesterday, and as of a couple minutes ago I am about 1/4" from starting the heel flap of the second sock. I'm using Lion Brand Magic Stripe yarn on US #1 dpns, and the sock fits, but it's tight. As in, I fight it on, and then it's okay until I need to get it off again. I hope this sock loosens up either in washing or wear, otherwise I won't be able to wear them on days when I am feeling too fatigued for a fashion fracas.

I'm also having a heel problem, it seems. My sl1, k1, psso has a gap right before it. I don't know what's causing this, but I think on the second sock I am going to use a different decrease stitch and see if that fixes it. If that doesn't work, I don't know what to do. I'm going to wear these socks, so it doesn't really matter now, but I don't want this happening on socks I am giving away.

Looking at these socks objectively, I still think they are ugly. However, they match half the pants I own, so I suspect that they won't exactly be languishing at the bottom of my sock basket.

That is, assuming I can get them on.

Would you say they're socks only a mother could love? ;P
