What was that? Something about having promised you socks? Yes, yes I do recall something like that. Alas, our weekend didn’t quite allow for daylight sock photography.  We had an epic, two-day game of Carcassonne instead, and I’m not at all sorry. But never fear, there was knitting. I had to do something while I waited for it to be my turn.  See, sock.

And while we’re here, let’s just take a moment to see what a difference blocking makes.  That’s the same yarn (String Theory Merino DK), same needles, same stitch, same knitter…totally different look before and after blocking.  Somehow it managed to change color…even though it didn’t actually make the water in the sink change color.  I have no idea how that happened, but I’m working on faith that it will happen to the second one when I block it too when the knitting is done.
