I remember this

Hey, that looks familiar.  That looks rather like a sock.

DSC_0845Do you have any idea how long it’s been since I knit a sock?  The last pair were Amenable and I finished them at the end of January.  That’s almost six months ago.  That’s not really cool at all.

These are going smoothly (almost as if the sock gods were trying to tempt me back to their cause).  I had one little ‘wrong needles’ incident where I had to rip out a false start, but even that didn’t feel terribly traumatic.  These actually seem to be going rather quickly.  I expect you to remind me I said that when I’m in the middle of the second sock’s foot and can’t ever imagine being done with them.  But so far, they’re zipping along.

The yarn is the lovely Pediboo Sport by Frog Tree.  It really is one of the rounder yarns I’ve ever worked with, very crisp feeling on the needles.  It’s 255 yards per skein, and these are going to be boy socks, so I’m pretty sure I’ll need two skeins, but I’m curious as to just what the yardage will be.  I’ll weigh this one when I’m done and see.
