Today's weather was so wonderful (upper 70's (25-26c), light breeze) that it lulled me into a hypnotic sense of well being and, as I drove around, running errands, I caught myself singing along with the BeeGee's "Oooooohh...Nobody gets too much heaven no more..It's much harder to come by, I'm waiting in line.." before I snapped out of it and changed the radio channel.
But the highlight of the day was finishing my first sock!! After overcoming the trauma of Mika chewing through my sock yarn 2 inches from the toe last night, and agonizing over my CASP 2 questionnaire this morning, I persevered and have one sock. The other one is 3/4 way through so hopefully I'll have a pair any day now.
I've discovered that photographing a sock is hard to do when you a) don't want scaly dry skin to show b) are alone or c) don't have one of those sock blocker thingies. (Note the large bottle of Excedrin I keep on my desk, next to the computer.)
Lessons learned from knitting this sock:
a) Keep the sock yarn away from kitty
b) What the sock knitting fuss is all about
c) Girlfriend needs a pedicure, STAT
So, you know that giddy feeling when you rushed home from elementary school and you burst through the door, so excited to show your Mom your beautiful art project? That's what it feels like to knit your first sock.
