Knitting by Judy @ 4:00 PM

Here’s a pic of the finished socks for # 1 Son. I managed to get them washed and blocked last night.

He wore them today, so I guess he likes them. 😀

I managed to get six of the seven hanks of Noro Kochoran wound into balls last night. Two of the hanks had no knots in them, and the other four had one knot apiece. Not too bad. Since I don’t like surprises in the middle of my balls, I untied the knots and started a new ball. Most of the knots were toward the middle of the hank, but one was only a few yards in. That left me with a weird little ball that I guess I’ll use for my swatch.

And, speaking of swatching, I hope to get that done tonight!

For anyone who was wondering, #1 Son agreed that his fingerless gloves could wait. He’s not likely to need them for a few months and I can whip them out in a weekend or so. I promised him I wouldn’t forget. I’ve already got the yarn!

    • I am happy to engage in discussion with those who accept that technology and affluence are a net plus, but who worry about their troubling side effects. Spare me, however, the sensitive souls who deplore technological advance and economic growth over their cell phones on their way to the airport.
