Half A Sock
Did I mention this is the second black sock? That means I only have to knit another half of a sock and I'm finished with the pair of black socks! I'm so ready to knit socks that are not black. This second one is going faster and easier than the first one. I think that's primarily because I'm only knitting it during the day, sitting by the window. I have almost grabbed it a few evenings to knit while I watch TV, but have reminded myself not to, and I grabbed something else instead. I think that's made a huge difference in how this sock is going.
In addition to being black, and therefore absorbing all light around it, the yarn is also a bit splitty. It's not the most irritating of splitty yarns I've ever worked with (that honor goes to a cotton and rayon blend I used when I was a newer knitter), but it's definitely got a bit of splitty-ness to to it which doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy towards it.
On a positive note however, I do still like the pattern and I could see this in other colors working out quite well. Even a nice navy blue would be better!
