These are the slowest going socks ever! It’s because I want to be working on something else but I’m hard headed enough to stick with it til I get them finished . . I hope!
The foot needs to be 7.25″ before I start shaping the toe. I knitted for hours last night, not letting myself stop and measure. When it was time for bed, I guessed I would have knitted 4.5″ from the heel. NO! 3.25″.
The pattern isn’t hard. The yarn is skinnier than some sock yarn so that makes it take a bit longer. It’s just my attitude. I want to be done with them. I keep telling myself that it’s ok to put them aside and work on something else but that’s not true. I have to get these done.
My plan is to continue working down the foot in the pattern and by Tuesday, when I go to knitting, if I haven’t gotten down to about 7″ where I can stop the pattern and start doing plain knitting, I’m doing it anyway so I can take these to knitting and get them done.
There’s a good chance, if I have much knitting time today or tomorrow, that I can get those last 4″ done. Maybe.
Don’t let me stop til I’m done! 🙂
