I finished my first sock on Sunday:
Seriously, despite everything you may have heard, kitchener stitch--the way you graft the toe together seamlessly--is not that hard, and it is amazingly cool.
And I feel amazingly cool for having finished one sock.
Sadly, my other foot feels amazingly chilly with no sock to wear.
So I started on the second one before we headed off for our Superbowl party. I knit about 4 inches of it during the game (and got many looks from people wondering why in the world a person would knit socks), but then the work week came, and now I am stalled again. But it will come.
In the words of many a sock-knitter, faced with an impending Dook game, GO HEELS.
