Thank You Kings County Supreme Court

Were it not for you, I would not have finished the Uptown Boot Socks out of Fleece Artist Merino Sock quite so quickly. Yesterday started around 8:30 AM just past where I picked up stitches for the gussets. I finished jury duty today with a pair of socks!

Alright, so I finished them at The Point last night - but I got most of the sock done at jury duty, so I still think it counts for the court (much in the same way that the starting pitcher get the win or loss of a game even if they bring in a releiver).

I'm wearing them today, and they're making my feet quite comfortable. Check out these heels too:

They were knit with the aforementioned Fleece Artist superwash yarn on size 1 addis. It took a rediculously short amount of time to knit these. I cast on for these on March 24th making the time it took to knit these a little longer than two weeks.

I'm on a finishing roll! I think I'm going to bring those slippers from Weekend Knitting I started in my pre-blog days to The Point to see if Josh can help me decipher the instructions. They're all knitted, they just need to be assembled and sewed together. I couldn't figure out the finishing instructions about a year ago, so I'm hoping that betwen Josh and I we can figure it out. They were supposed to be a Christmas gift to my mother about three years ago. They're a bit late.

I've only got about thirty rows left to do on Icarus! That makes it sound like less than 15,120 stitches right?

But I'm all ready to cast on for a new pair of socks out of my Socks that Rock in colorway Rhode Island Red! I think I'm going to do a relatively simple ribbed sock with just a cable down the sides. Easy, quick and hopefully it'll let the yarn show itself off!

There is a pattern for rib socks witha cable down the side 25 Favorite Socks. It is also in an older issue of Interweave!

Actually, I was thinking of using that exact pattern!

Kudos for being able to read my mind!
