Progress not perfection

March socks in progress, originally uploaded by alicethelma.

I finally got past the heels and I’m in the home stretch of the March socks. And while these are not the prettiest socks I’ve ever made, I did realize that they comprise pair number 20. That’s right folks – a landmark moment. This is the 20th pair of socks that I’ve made since I began making socks back in 2003. Now if you would have told me, back in 2003, that I would be knitting socks on two circular needles, both socks concurrently, from the toe up with a “short row” heel, I would have laughed in your face. Some days I wonder if I was better off not knowing. Ignorance is bliss as they say.
