Rounding second....heading for home

Image hosted by

One down, one to go. Although I think I might redo the two-color ribbing: it's 4x2 right now, but I think it would be better as 3x1, and it maybe should be an inch longer for the proportions to be right. I already redid it from 2x2, though, so it might just stay as it is. We'll see how lazy I feel when I'm done with the second one.

Let it be noted that I was working diligently on this sock during the Sox-Indians game last night. I lapsed in the 8th, though, and put it down to rest my hands, at which point the Indians scored two runs to tie the game. I picked it back up and started knitting furiously, and as I did my boy Johnny Damon banged home two to cinch the win.

Behold: the power of the Red Sox Sox.

So cute, and perfect, I'm sure, for chilly Michigan. I'd imagine wool socks in Austin are pretty much for decoration and three cold days out of the year. But you'll get lots of use out of them in your snowy new home, right?

Love that sock! I may have to make a pair of those myself...

Which technique did you use for your short rows? I always seem to get little holes, or at least weird lumps on mine--yours look very nice & neat.

Great socks. I live very, very close to St. Louis, and I must admit last year I was secretely cheering on the Red Sox. They just deserved it more!
