Some plain self striping socks. I can't tell you how long these have taken! I left them in a yarn bowl by my chair (so that they weren't portable) and picked them up when I was too tired to knit on anything even vaguely patterned, except that meant that I kept dropping stitches and having to tink back just before bed. I also found that loads of time I didn't wrap the yarn around the stitch, so on the next row I'd have a stitch whic was sitting wrongly on the needle, and the yarn behind it. I was puzzled as to why this was happening (this doesn't happen with any other knitting) and see that my sock knitting has evolved, without me realising! I used to poke that right needle with my left index finger as I pulled it out of the knitted stitch. Now I don't do that, I hold only the left needle with that finger. I presume it's because I often had a little cut on that finger from the sharp needle points, and stopped doing it. What used to feel awkward (not poking the needle) now seems natural! carefully!
The yarn is Knitting Goddess UK's March Club yarn, in British Wool and Nylon. I've already found one of the Scrap balls and intend to cast on another sock soon. I've got to decide what to do about the joins though. Thinking I may do what I sometimes do with cottons and linen yarns - knit about four or five stitches wiht both yarns and on subsequent rows weave in the ends. I cannot imagine darning in a million ends after it's finished. I may do magic knot thingies on the leg of the sock, which I like to be a bit loose, and knit in the ends on the foot.
