After the game, I kind of stalled on my socks. The gusset portion is rather tedious. Fortunately, the heel flap is quick and easy, with just enough of a pattern to keep me interested. Since then, I feel like my socks have been flying, though when I look at them they don't look nearly long enough yet. I crunched some numbers and figured out the increases needed in my gage to turn the socks into knee-highs. I'm even replicating part of the pattern in the increase portion of the sock. Honestly, with such a pretty pattern, I could not resist. Especially since I'm using stash yarn that I know I have enough of. So, the increased are coming along and every now and then I'll try the socks on just to check. They are snug without being too tight. I'm looking forward to the finished product.
In non-craft related news, I am now employed! The craft repercussions are two-fold. First, I will have less time to work on any projects. This was expected and though a little disappointing, an acceptable compromise. The second side-effect was unexpected, more ideas! I'm starting to think I may need a better way to record all my project thoughts. Loose sheets of graph paper don't seem to be working as well when you have so many different project. They tend to get mixed up. Or stashed in a variety of places when the house gets cleaned. Does anyone have suggestions for ways to organize projects that consist of multiple pages of doodles and notes? Please leave a note in the comments!
