I think "socks" is a new curse word for me. It's not that I dislike them, in fact, I love them, it's just that lately they've been frustrating me. Being a sucker for any kind of challenge, I decided to try the two at a time, toe-up, magic loop socks from the KnitPicks pattern (I'm still debating joining the knit-along). I think I'm starting to get the hang of it, but I've had to rip them out a couple of times and re-knit them in the name of perfection. The one thing I seem to be having problems with is keeping the side stitches tight as I knit because the cables of the needles keep doing random and crazy things. Not that random and crazy is bad, that would be like the pot calling the kettle black, but it would be nice if I could figure out how to keep them in line... As with most of my knitting epiphanies it will probably come to me after glaring at my knitting for an hour or so until it subjects to my will.
In other news, I have the first strip of my skull blanket almost finished! Just two more squares (50 rows each of stst.) and I can start the next, more challenging strip. Then I'll have to decide how I'm going to manage the colour work without having the whole blanket falling apart lol. As long as my boyfriend doesn't try to wash it, everything should be fine.
