A sock swatch?
Well, I never. And I probably won't ever. But Al has. A certain Pete is going to have quite a nice pair of handknit socks this winter.
As for me, I'm really tired of socks. I am nearly finished with the pretty blues yarn from Major Jennifer and then I'm done with socks for a bit. There is nothing like wearing a pair or your own hardknit socks, no question. But, I am weary of size one needles and evil little dropped stitches.
The Cub thing is really starting to deserve my conplete attention you see, and I cannot easily frog and then pick tiny evil little stitches up easily. I suppose if I use floss and a sewing needle it may be doable and I'm certain sock devotees do it all the time, but I need a break from skinny little sock yarns.
The Cub thing is getting to a serious place. An every game counts so much kind of serious place. A I'm getting my hopes up kind of place......
certainly not the kind of place where tiny needles and tiny stitches can play around while I am not paying attention to them. So, for awhile, sock yarns will be resting around here.
I'd LOVE to see your socks though. Just don't look for mine for awhile:)
