I'd call this "Sock it to me!" but I have a sense of humour

Well, I've managed to amaze myself with my sock knitting today. Take a look at the needle poked through the sock.



















That's where I started this morning. I've finished the sock leg, the heel flap, turned the heel and started the gusset decreasing. I'm in a state of awe at myself, and I'm my biggest critic. Tomorrow my mum is coming over and we're sewing all day so I doubt I'll get anything knitted, so the awe will end, thankfully.

My niece was just happy that I was knitting in St Kilda colours - try being non-AFL-affiliated in Melbourne. People just stare at you like a freak. Good thing I've been used to it for years!

Amazing progress. Now if I only had the attention span for that kind of progress.

For someone who claims to not like sock knitting very much you are flying through those! And are those cables I see going up the side of the leg?

Oh and say hi to your mum for me!

I had to add cables! The monotony of going around and around and around for days would have driven me insane!
