Resignation.

Dear Lolly,

I love you but, this sock thing... I quit.

Love,
Laura.


No really people. Socktoberfest has come to an unplanned early end for me. Perhaps it's because I tried a Cookie A pattern again when I KNOW that I have never successfully completed one of her patterns for one reason or another. Perhaps it's just poor planning and measurement on my part. Perhaps I am just not meant to be a sock knitter. *shrug*

While waiting for shmoo to get home yesterday so he could try on this sock that I knew I needed to stop knitting on until I was sure it fit.... (it didn't).....I finally cracked and cast on for Lady Eleanor. So far I am digging it. I'm not sure, but I think this colorway would actually look better as a Clapotis. I could be wrong of course, but we'll see.

Sigh....
I too have never been a "sock" completer - which is why shmoo is sock deprived!!

I really like that colorway for the Lady Eleanor! I just bought some Noro for one I plan to make... some day. I just need to finish up my Clapotis first.
