A little more sock
Thanks for all the complements on the wrap yesterday (both for the wrap and model)!
My latest public knitting project has been this Vog On sock and as you can see I've made it around the heel turn and I'm working on the gusset decreases. It's always interesting the kind of comments I get when I knit socks in public but for some reason, this sock has caused two separate people to ask if I had to knit two socks. (Both of the people who asked this question were men and neither one had given any indication of being a few cards short of a full deck before the question.) I've been knitting socks in public for years and I've been asked lots of questions about them, but this is the first time I've been asked this particular question and to get it twice in a couple of days kind of blindsided me. My answer was that yes, since feet tend to come in pairs, I would be knitting two socks.
Has anyone else ever gotten this question? How did you answer it? Is there another option besides knitting two socks? Is it possible to knit one sock, bury it in the forest on a full moon and come back and dig it up along with it's mate which has magically appeared, fully knitted by the forest fairies? Where is this forest? Do I need to leave the rest of the skein of sock yarn in the forest or do the fairies have their own stash? Do they need needles? I'm just a bit confused by the whole thing right now.
