I’m doing something odd.  I’m knitting a plain sock.  A very plain sock.  A nearly alarmingly plain sock.  See?

_DSC8993(And because you’ll ask, yes, it’s String Theory, of course it is!)  I can’t tell if this is a passing phase, a new trend, or a sign of some sort of incipient stroke.  Somebody tell me, is this pretty, or have I lost it and am I knitting a boring sock?
