Things that don't go fast enough . . . .
Yup, last week I realized that August was right around the corner, and I wasn't likely to finish either of my current Socks In Progress in time for a July SAM credit. So I decided to cast on a pair of footies. Footies are quick, and if I made the cuff at least 2 inches long, they'd count for a Summer Of Socks credit also. (Does that make them Shorties instead of Footies???)
- my Internet connection (or more accurately, my whole computer. I think it's on it's last leg.)
- the days that need to pass until the weekend
- the four hours until dinner (Pea and I are on diets, and find ourselves very hungry between meals)
- my latest pair of socks . . .
I pulled some Elann Esprit / Sock It To Me from deep within the stash and cast on. I'd been mulling over an idea for footies with cables like the famous Fetching Mitts. I decided my cables would alternate between left and right crossing. It ended up looking something like this. (They look better in real life though.)
I like it. But as you can see, today is July 30th and sock #1 isn't finished. How likely is it that I can knit one and a half footies by midnight tomorrow??
Not very likely at all. Oh well, I guess I'll finish next week and have my August credit out of the way early.
