03/26/10 - I finished one! :D It looks good despite being much too loose for me.

03/22/10 - I don’t love the yarn knit up as much as I did on the hank, and it’s making me tired of knitting this sock. I wish I was done! The idea of making a second one does not sound fun sigh

03/21/10 - Finished turning the heel.. my first try at short rows. I think I did pretty good! I don’t think I picked up my heel stitches in the right spot though, I have a bit of a ridge inside the sock.

Also, I apparently don’t knit as tight as I thought I did, so going up a needle size was a poor choice. These socks are going to be too big for me. I think I’ll give them to my boyfriend, then.

03/20/10 - Well crap. I wound up knitting my heel flap backwards and had to frog all 32 rows of it. I wonder why it didn’t dawn on me MUCH earlier than that. sigh Is this a sign? Is my sock punishing me for trying to knit it short? Does it want to be a full length sock?!

03/19/10 -Taking the plunge and making my first socks, ahhh!

So far so good. If I didn’t know better, I’d think I was making another pair of tanya’s textured mitts, heh. Considering knitting short socks just for the sake of finishing and getting on with some toe-up socks, but that seems like cheating.

This yarn is very busy, and you can hardly see the stitch pattern. Ah well.
