Progress Report: Socks, Blanket.

Today was not the day I envisioned. The confluence of my allergies and lack of sleep was not a good combination for doing my normal activities.

This perfectly sums up the way I’m feeling. Meh.

But the combination was good to hang about and work on my “Say Yes to Pie” (working title??) socks. I am going to do the heels together, so I’m going to call this pair 45% complete.

Oh baby! Look at this BEAUTIFUL SOCK!!

When I initially wrote about these socks a couple weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to be doing a bunch of new techniques. Well, today I tried Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off in pattern (2×2 rib). I think it should be called Jeny’s Surprisingly Tedious Bind-off; it felt like it was never going to end. I USUALLY do a knit-two-together bind-off. I’m fast at it and I don’t need to think. Jeny’s technique is slightly stretchier than my “usual” stretchy bind-off. Looks about the same.

K2tog bind-off in the back, Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy bind-off in the front. Needle size different: 3 vs 1.5
