I’m Free!

April 19, 2012

Free at last from the tug of a long-languishing unfinished object.

  • Pattern: Haleakala Socks by Cookie A. from the 2011 Sock Club
  • Yarn: String Theory Caper Sock in Solas
  • Mods: One sock is inadvertently 1/2 an inch longer than the other.  Ravelry notes here.

These were fun to knit and the yarn was glorious. As usual, I wonder what took me so long.  I suspect the culprit was the set-up at the gusset/instep; it tripped me up each time, and both socks took a long time out.

And now the question I always ponder in those last couple inches of a project: what to knit next?

I also just finished The Wierd Sisters last night, which means it’s game on for Catching Fire!  The end and beginning of some projects are just so sweet, aren’t they?
