I finished my socks. And…one toe is 6 rows shorter than the other toe. Not important, right? Except, they feel different on my feet. Very different. And, it happens that the slightly shorter sock is meant for the slightly longer foot. I suppose I will have to wear them “backwards.” Right now they are blocking – photos to follow. If I get the gumption I might pick that toe apart and fix it. Or, more likely, they’ll live a happy – although lopsided – life on my feet.

I decided to bind off and block because I wanted desperately to get to the next project.

This is the first mitten, sans thumb. The houndstooth pattern makes these mittens doubly thick, and they shall be wonderfully warm come wintertime.

Hurrah for new projects!
