So. That sock? I finished it. About goddamn time. Who knew it would take me WEEKS to knit one lil sock. Why did nobody warn me how long it takes to knit a sock? Seriously. WEEKS!
So here is the finished product. The heel on one side has some laddering. My kitchner stitch needs a lot of work. But it looks like a sock, it feels like a sock and it fits. Therefore, it is a sock.
Now, the question is. Do I knit the second sock the same exact way? Do I try a star toe with a gathered closure instead? Maybe a short row heel? Or do I knit it the same and try to perfect my skills? Orrr...do I just say fuck it and move on to something new? (Lace perhaps? Fancy socks?) Decisions!
