I have a finished sock.
Really, this picture doesn't do it justice at all. Let's look at another one.
See the problem now? Maybe this next one is the best illustration.
This is a Very Big Sock. And not in a good way--not in the way David's kilt hose are very big socks. Those are supposed to be big. This is just too big.
Sigh. I swatched! I did math! ...And when I saw that it was too big, I kept going--and the sock didn't magically shrink during knitting! So unfair.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do about this. For now, it's in time out.
I also got started crocheting a purse from the recycled sari silk yarn Mom sent me. I took a few pictures, but they were ridiculously dark so I'm not posting them. I might rip it out and start over--I think my purse bottom is too long. Also, it's kind of lumpy and uneven, but that might be because the yarn is so unevenly spun (instead of being some fault in my crocheting). And this was supposed to be the quick, easy, instant gratification project!
All in all, the last few days have been real downers, craft-wise. Maybe it's time to cast on a nice dishcloth.
