So close, but yet so far

This was lunch today:


The second sock doesn't look different, but it is.



Rip it, rip it.

I managed to make up all the ground I lost, and finish casting off the second sock about fifteen minutes after I got home from knit night. I should have tried harder to finish, because I could have just handed them off to my bus buddy. Now she will have to wait another week.


Now, y'all may recall that I promised myself a wee treat after my exam:


Whee! Retail therapy.

This is the first yarn I've purchased in two months. For me, that is a very, very long time. I am loving all these bright, fun colours. Makes me believe that spring really is here.

NOOOOOOOO! okay, so I don't feel like quite the idiot... as I have to make another sock. Because I decreased properly this time... It came out smaller than the first. Please, don't ask me to explain that one. Same # of rows and everything until the decrease.

Socks are evil oh great supreme empress of the sock.
