The Science of Socks: Science Project #1
I had just had one of those great ebay moments, the kind where you sell an item for a lot more than you thought it was worth. In this case, it was a Johnny Was shirt, once-loved but no longer needed.
Flush with ebay cash, I signed up for the Knit Purl Sock Club. Here's how the internal conversation went: Six pairs for $195? Why, per pair that's only ... oh, that is a lot. Never mind, it's not real money, anyway. It's ebay money!
The first project arrived in early September: Andamento Socks, custom pattern by Sarah Pope, 2 skeins custom Koigu Premium Painter's Palette.
It turns out this is one of those obsessive projects. I cast on two nights ago, grafted the toe on the first sock this morning.
