Progress Report on REALLY Boring Socks

Sock knitters beware: the photos below depict the most boring sock pattern ever!!!! It’s killing me. I’m several inches away from the top of Aaron’s sock. I’m doing a 3 x 1 rib up from the ankle. It’s hard to see the ribbing but you’ll see it more clearly when I post an FO picture with Aaron wearing them! I hope will fit around his leg. The DPNs make it impossible for him to try it on. I suppose I could take out the DPNs, string it on a piece of scrap yarn and then have him try it on but I’ve just decided I’ll frog it a few inches if necessary. At least I made it to the ankle. Why do men have such long feet??? Ugh – it took forever!


I fit in lots of knitting this week because I was really tired and spent much of my free time on the couch. It must have been a baby growth spurt! I’ve posted more recent belly pictures over on my Flickr account, in case you’re interested. There are only about 8 weeks left. I’ve been having little discussions with the kid about how it should really come in about 5 weeks but I don’t know if it’s getting the message.

Speaking of baby arrivals, go congratulate Cari on the birth of the long awaited Thumper!!!!

Finally, I’ll leave you with a picture of Jacques asleep on the couch. This dog sleeps on his back with all four paws in the air and his mouth open. I think he’s actually drooling in this picture. He is such an old man dog. *sigh*.

    Wow, that is one relaxed dog! We could all take a lesson from him. Good luck in the next 8 weeks!

    WOW! Only 8 weeks left? I know it seems like you’ve been pregnant forever when you get that close! I had such fun thinking about meeting this little person on the outside during the last few weeks of my pregnancies!

    Way to hang in there on the boring socks! That’s rough stuff!

    If you have a 2nd set of the same size dpns or just slightly bigger, you can put half the stitches from each needle onto another needle so that you have 8 needles instead of 4.

    I do this with DH socks in progress all the time. He just has to be careful & go slow. [like trying on a porcupine] And of course, I supervise armed with MORE pointed sticks!

    I sympathize / emphasize about the boring as a few months ago I finished [finally] a pair of socks for my DH in a k3, p3 rib that seemed to go on forever!
