Knitting Olympics Day 14 - One Down in a Blaze of Glory
Sock number 7 is essentially done. I say "essentially" because I still have to weave in all of the ends with the flames, but I will do that today so I can see what I'm doing. I also will start the 8th and final sock for the Knitting Olympics and hope to make it past the leg flames before bedtime tonight. Actually, I should say that I hope to make it past the leg flames before the Figure Skating Long Program tonight, since I probably won't be knitting too much during that. I can't wait to finish these so I can block them. I don't think they look too bad right now, but I can't wait to see them all blocked. You guys are cracking me up with all the comments on these socks - I can't believe there are that many people out there who ALSO think flame socks are a good idea!
With all of the socks I've done in the last 2 weeks, there is a dent in my sock yarn stash. I will be adding to the stash again soon, but I thought I'd ask you guys: What is your favorite sock yarn and why? I'm allergic to acrylic so even if it gives free foot massages all day, if it has acrylic, it can't come home with me. Leave your sock yarn suggestions in the comments!
