Socktober 11th

Socktober, eh? So, where are all the socks?

I said things may get a little dull. Let's see where we are.

[My blood is now one half allergen and one half antihistamine. It's a terrible bother to have to do without hemoglobin, but we must make sacrifices].

I started a new sock journal. The sock journal is the place where I make a little tick for ever row of every sock I make. No, really, every single row.


Also, this is where I keep my crib notes for Kitchener and notes on how many rows for each sock yarn. No, really.

inside the sock journal

For instance, Koigu is 80-7-50-10-16-60-20. Socka is 80-7-55-10-16-65-20. It's quite simple*.

[I crave horseradish and fried chicken, 'though not together].

This is a Koigu sock in color #0000, cream. This sock is ironic.

This is the brown sock for which I had to reknit the heel three times. This sock is dull.

another cat on a sock

[My newest hobby is reading digital cameras reviews].

This sock is knit from Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino in Cabin Fever. The colors in this photo are off.

no cat this time

I have another sock that I'm working on, but the batteries gave out.

This last one is from Sunday's Farmer's Market. [Click for the big version].


[*Cast on 80. Rib for 6. 50 rows for the ankle. 10 for the heel set up. Short row down to 16 for the heel. 60 rows for the foot. Short row to 20 for the toe].

I love your sock notes, really! I would never have the patience to keep such good notes. I'm in the middle of my first ever pair of socks...not too sure I'll finish! Yours are beautiful.

Oooh, I'm liking the sock notes too. I'm SO not that organized.
