Sock That Rocks.

My knitting moratorium has been lifted. The thumb is much better, and I have been able to resume my tussle with the needles.

I finished the sock I was making, and I am inordinately proud of it:

It's my first sock, and it really looks like a sock, doesn't it?! I managed to "turn the heel" and everything, without having a major aneurism or anything.

I can't lie, though, that thing is huge. I don't know how it happened, but I made a sock big enough to fit both my feet in at once, and maybe a couple of other people's, too. If I had a Yeti on my Christmas list, I'd be all set.

I'm making the other one as we speak, and I seem to have been able to make it a more reasonable size. (They are both for me, so I don't really care if they look ridiculous. Besides, the First Rule Of Knitting is: I made it, I'm wearing it.)

Eventually I hope to be able to make socks that actually match.

It's beautiful!! I'd like to see it on you at Wend's Christmas open house.

Sadly, I will not be at the Christmas CD launch party...those of us that work on Saturdays bitterly resent those of you who do not! And plus, that sock is never going to be worn outside of the house; it's just too....malignant.
