Knitting Olympics Day 4



As the sun rises over Torino, I mean Virginia, on Day 4 of the Knitting Olympics, we see a completed sock and most of the leg of the second sock. But wait! Wasn't the plan to knit a sock every 4 days? How is this possible? Its an Olympic Miracle!

Yes, that's right, I knit a sock in 2 days and the leg you see above is what I did yesterday. I think it was a combination of being snowed in and Mickael having the weekend off (he was able to corral the wee one so I could knit). I'd be very surprised if I can continue to knit a sock every 2 days, but hey, its the Olympics, anything can happen. The sock hasn't been blocked yet (I like to block them as a pair) and red seems to be a difficult color to photograph - I'll work on that. In the meantime, I have tentatively selected a third sock yarn and pattern for a third pair, if I do in fact keep knitting as quickly as I started out. Go USA!

Wow girl! Good for you! I too committed to two pairs of socks for the Olympics. I would have had my first sock completed in two days as well if I hadn't completely messed up the ribbing and had to frog back quite a bit. Oh well!

Congrats on your success and good luck on a 3rd pair!

GO TEAM SOCKS!!!

This seems quite impressive! My mother has almost finished a tiny red sweater for a certain grandson and has finished the matching red hat. It is all very cute. I don't think she is watching the Olympics while she finishes, though. :) Mindy
