A few days and I am on my way to enjoying a warm, soft pair of socks.
Of course, there's no mystery as the whereabouts of the other sock. I've been struck by the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome. I'll get the other sock soon enough.
Truth be told, I started working on these socks because I hit a wall with my Somewhat Cowl. Everything was fine until I bound off the body. Although I bound off loosely, it was too tight. Take two, I ripped it out and bound off in a larger size needle and still too tight. I was just frustrated so I put it down and started working on my Comfy Socks. I was cruising my favorite blogs this afternoon and came across a mention of the invisible bind-off which makes a flexible edge. I found the method in the Vogue Knitting Ultimate Knitting Book but it was way too complicated for a 2x2 ribbing. Now that I've finished my sock, I'll pick it back up and try a larger size needle for the bind-off.
