Yea for Blogging!!

Planes are wonderful places for getting oodles of knitting done. MP3 player with a book or some music and just look what turns up.
This is sock is destined for my sock-it-to-me partner. I have a little bit of fixing to do on the toe - I decreased one round to many and gave it a little nipple - not so cute. Easy fix but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I still have mixed feelings about the yarn - just look at that halo. The socks are very soft & very warm but I dunno how they'll hold up in the long run. I'll have to remember to send my pal the leftovers (of which there will probably be A LOT) in case of blow-outs.

On to other things. My clessidras. I have only touched these once or twice all summer. Something about not being able to wear them when I finish is keeping me from wanting to knit them. We're getting close to sock time :) so I'm thinking about them again - I got to wear jeans the other night :) Last week I mentioned I had a problem with them. So I took them out of the bag to take pictures of my issues and get an opinion on fixing them. See the problem?

How bout now? See it now? Sock #1

Sock #2

Can't see the problem?? Hehe... me either! Yea that means I don't need to fix it!! :) Yea for taking pictures of your knitting!

I know - you can't figure it out and it's killin ya. The problem was - despite copious note, taking and working both socks at the same time I managed to goof the decreases on the last few rounds. See that small section of purl stitches at the bottom of the "v" well on one sock it's a few rounds bigger than the other sock (I think sock #2 is the one that's correct). I thought it was a noticeable issue & I'd need to unknit one sock to fix it - I can't rip cables, unknitting would have been a nightmare. You know when I realized I screwed up I threw them into the knit bag and haven't looked at them since. After letting them stew then taking them out for closer examination the error is really negligible. I really had to look for it when I was taking the pictures so no one but me will ever really notice and I can totally live with that.

For the record the first one of you in person smart alecs that says "hey your decreases aren't even" is gonna get it with a dpn. Luvyou!

Not sayin' nuthin'.
Error, what error? Can't see the problem at all. All I can see is some great cabled socks.

And a nipple.
Love the finished sock and even though you pointed it out I still can't see the error. Those are going to be some gorgeous socks, can't wait to see them once you finish.
Your Clessidras are so cool - great idea to knit them both tog though!
I don't see no stinkin error!
And I'm loven the toe on your finished sock!
Some how when blogger changed I lost some of the feeds on my bloglines. I'm glad to have found you again!!
A sock with a nipple... I have now seen it all. Except for your error, which I can't see at all! Maybe your sock decided to fix its own behavior during the time-out you gave it?
I like the sock, despite it having a nipple on the toe. I do see the problem with the Clessidras, but I had to look at the picture for a long time before I saw it. Good decision to let the error live. How much more do you have to go before they're finished?
I am so glad that I'm not the only one who had issuse finding the error in the sox... UMMM... How the heck did you even find it? Those sox look great, don't kill yourself about a mistake noone can even find no matter how much we stare at it...
