For the first time ever, B has agreed to socks that are not grey or black and since I’m knitting these 2 sock on magic loop, there is less likelihood of him losing a sock like last time. So, yay for not black socks!
These are my carry with my everywhere project and I work on them at home, on my lunch break and pretty much anywhere I can get a few minutes to knit. This is Knit Witch sock yarn in Pisces that is a total handgasm to knit with and NOT splitty at all. And the socks are downright squishy. I heart this yarn.
Every time I make B try them on to check my progress and make sure they fit (so far so good) and ask him how they feel he always says the same two things:
“It feels like I’m not even wearing socks.”
“They’re kind of loose at the top. Can you fix that?”
The second two sentences makes me completely crazy because no matter how many times I explain to him that the stitches at the top are LIVE and are going to stretch out more than the ones that are not live until the socks are done, he still asks me every time. I think he likes to watch me twitch when he asks.
Good thing I don’t let him try them on very often.
