On knitting socks
One thing that is wonderful about knitting socks is the portability. I love having a pair of socks going because I can just pop one of them into my bag and go. I like to knit both of them evenly since I am prone to “Second Sock Syndrome” and always working on the one furthest behind keeps them even. Plus I never move to another stage without them both being ready for the next step. For example no one gets a heel flap until both cuffs are done. Here is a shot of the red socks I was knitting this summer. I was working on it before going into the office. A little relaxing moment after dealing with the Boston area traffic. They are made from Wildfoote Deluxe sock yarn and have a very interesting basket weave ribbing.
