Socks are done!

Take that, little kid!

My socks are done, and I like them. I started the second one on Thursday at Naughty Knitters, and finished Sunday afternoon at 4:45. That is not a long time, right? Right.

In the meantime, we went to Visalia because I had a Knitters Haven itch. I went looking for sock yarn, and behold, I now have some Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in Winterberry. It is pretty. I also bought the book from Cat Bordhi on how to knit socks with two circulars. Now that I read the two pages of actual instruction on how to do it, I probably could have done with not buying it.

Anyway, I now have to decide on the next pair of socks. Toe up? Two circulars? If I choose two circulars I have to wait since I ordered two #1 circulars from knit picks a few days ago. Having two of the exact same addi turbos just seems too decadent, since they are $15 each. I have been listening to Lime and Violets knitting podcast and they are knitting the Baudelaire socks from knitty and I am thinking I might try to do them. They seem much more complicated, obviously, than my basic socks, but maybe I am ready for that.

Other pressing knitting decisions involve what to knit at NK tomorrow morning, what to impress the little kid with at dance, and what to take on the train over the weekend. Such major decisions that involve deep concentration, and the wrong choice could have all sorts of consequences.
