I really think I could have done it. When I said I would have two pairs of socks done by tonight, I didn’t see any reason that wouldn’t turn out to be true. And I still, even now, just a matter of hours away from tonight, believe that it could have been true. When I had each pair about 60-70% done, it was perfectly reasonable to think I could finish both pairs in about a week.
However. Monday and Friday I had things to do after work that involved much driving (though at least Monday’s thing was a birthday party, which provided some knitting time between the driving times). Wednesday and Thursday I had a migraine. There was not much opportunity to knit on my lunch breaks, and the stretch of waiting room time I expected at the eye doctor yesterday never materialized.
So, here is what we have.
This much of the Comfort DK Opposite Socks:
And an Aquaphobia just past the heel:
I was a bit worried about making progress on the second Aquaphobia. I had reached that point where I’d been working on them so long that I didn’t want to say it but I was getting a little sick of them. Dan even said to me yesterday, “You’ve been working on those for a while. Are you getting sick of them?” And I had to admit that, yes, I was. Then I pulled out the first one so I could double-check my mods and make sure I was working on a second sock that would actually match the first. And once I saw that first one again and remembered how pretty these are going to be when they’re done? Boom! Motivation back, heel turned. I am so ready for these socks.
And I can totally finish both pairs in the next week.
