A Personal Best

I finished a sock in one week!



Mind you, it is made from sport weight yarn and size 3 needles, but I finished an entire sock in one week! I am so pleased with myself. I did cast one for the second right away - and since I am only working 2 days this week, I have a very good chance of finishing the second sock. They are a little bit big on my size 6.75 feet. Yeah, that looks odd, doesn't it? Size 6.5 is a bit snug and size 7 a bit big. In any case, I do hope they get a bit felted and smaller in the wash.

Something that strikes me about the sock is that it looks so sedate and business-like from the toe to almost the heel - and then it goes all willy-nilly with the colours. It is a sock with multiple personalities...

very pretty. I guess it makes sense that it would be possible to be "between sizes"

You finished a sock in a week? Howdyoudodat?

Incidentally, I understand the between sizes thing. I'm a 10.25, myself. Having a baby does weird things to every part, it seems.

And the best part is the willy-nilly colour bits are above the shoe. All out there in public doin' their crazy rainbow thing. Yay!

I think Willow is suspicious of the sock. She seems on to it. That sock isn't fooling her at all.

Wow! The sock's beautiful.

You description of the colors made me giggle =) It's like a mullet, "Business in the front, party in the back!"

*Your sock should never be compared to a bad 80's haircut.

Love it! Are you doing it out of Silk Garden Lite? I just started one for me too! (Well, it might be a sister sock, I haven't decided yet.) Looks great!
