Do you guys remember this sock?
I started it back when I was living with W, mostly because I was going to see Anne Hanson last November and wanted to knit one of her patterns. So, I started on the Longjohn Sock pattern in Regia Random Stripe.
Then I broke up with W, stopped knitting (stopped doing anything actually) and picked up the project again over winter, put it down when I started knitting bricks like crazy, picked it up again... the typical WIP dance.
I actually got pretty far on the sock, past the heel turn, until I saw this:
No, it's not a mistake. I just like the way that this yarn looks in stockinette so much! I thought about it, and I decided to start over and just do two plain two-up stress socks.
I haven't looked back. I might make the long john socks again in a solid color, but for now? These are going to be my sock projects! I'm already done with the first sock, and I really like the way that it looks.
Viva finishing ancient WIPs! Or, at least, making progress? I hope to have this pair for when I move back home for summer "vacation."
