I finished the heel yesterday and started cruising up the leg this morning.  Didn’t knit on the ferry but read with a cup of coffee in hand instead.  I’m hoping to have this sock finished this week and take a week or so to finish its mate.  My goal is to knit 12 pairs, at least, this year.  I need to keep up with the influx of new yarn.

I’ve noticed that no matter how many sock patterns I collect, I almost always knit the same, plain sock over and over again.  The only difference is the yarns used.  They are very much mindless in that sense.  I guess that makes me a circular sock machine.  I do need to break out the CSM to start in on the backlog of yarns that I’ve amassed.  Maybe this weekend.  I’m still not confident enough in it to use the good yarns on it, but I do know I like how the Legare handles much better than the AK’s that I had in the past.  Then I’ll have to conquer my fear of the ribber.

Craft on!
