Peering through the bars at freedom

this morning, i knit two whole rows on my dad's gentleman's fancy socks. i believe that i have 6 more rows of k2, p2, then another pattern repeat of k 2 rows, p2,k2 for 8 rows, k 2 rows, then k2,p2 for 8 rows and then i will be DONE with the cuff. hallelujah! ok, so then i have to knit the heel and a man's 10.5 foot. i suppose that is nothing to shake a stick at. the point is, my endless hell of circling the 2x2 ribbing drain is almost to a close.

it's so unfair. i keep seeing monkey socks everywhere i turn. cute, quick-knitting, non-boring monkey socks.

soon, my pretty. soon, you and i shall be together.

  1. That is some pretty yarn!

    I'm about to start a pair of 2 by 2 rib socks for my sister. Ugh. I may do 5/2, just to be different.

  2. I know you can just finish those blue Dad socks and get it over with and done. I have yarn to do Monkeys too, I think maybe I might stop putting them off for some other time. That pattern might be just the thing to end my apathetic knitting slump.
