That is how long I worked on the sock yesterday. 3.5 hours. And here is what I have done. At this rate, with a two-three inch top on the sock, I think I am looking at 14 hours total for the pair. Luckily Phil and my dad have the same shoe size so I was able to borrow Phil’s foot all night to try on the width and the length. I am almost ready to turn the heel. Phil’s feet were not pleasant last night so now I will have to plan for washing / blocking time before I can ship them off to my dad. (really, I never block socks..its just silly) But I would feel pretty bad sending him socks with Phil stink in them.
Can I knit at the opera? I am headed to the opera, and we have pretty good seats..is it insulting to knit at an opera? I swear I won’t have to look away or read a pattern….will it be ok? I just can’t spare three hours right now on this project..up against a time crunch here.
My mom dragged me to a country concert once, and she told me that it wouldn’t be that “twangy” and that I could knit during the concert. We got there and she had amazing seats, front and center in row two. We were so close that if I knitted, Brooks & Dunn would see me from stage… I thought that it might be insulting to them (really, it should be since I thought the concert was terrible and their outfits were even worse). But I like the opera and I don’t think that we are close enough that anyone on stage would see my hands moving…I mean really, its just a sock. It can’t be that noticeable, right?
