My original plan today included working on the second sock of my first pair. My logic was that since it is my day off in the middle of the week and I have no plans to go anywhere, then there should be plenty of time to knit. I have not made it that far at this time. There were a few things that interfered with doing so:
- cleaning the kitchen
- reading e-mail
- taking a nap
- looking up information for my husband on-line
- de-cluttering and vacuuming the living
- paying some bills
- exploring the idea of upgrading one of my blogs to having CSS
- doing laundry
I will eventually get to the sock. It is at the point where the toe is being shaped. The rows alternate between a decrease row and a plain knitting row. In order to keep myself from getting confused I normally knit two rows before stopping.
A week or so ago I bought this some Hill Country Instant Gratification Superwash Sock Yarn in the Country Caribean colorway. I made the mistake of starting the sock on #6 needles. I have learned from talking with those more knowledgeable about sock knitting at the Socknitters Group on Yahoo that this was not the best thing to do. The sock has been frogged and the yarn is waiting for me to do a gauge swatch on smaller needles. Once this is done, a new sock will be started. 🙂 Right now it looks like the new sock will be worked on tomorrow.
