A Sock in Ten Days


On Sunday, I finished the first of Eric’s socks.

Eric's First Summer Sock

Knitted using Skacel Wunderklecks (75% Wool, 25% Nylon) in color 2151

In case you’re counting, that means one sock in ten (10!) days.

An improvement of four days over my last sock.

Four days.

I’m trying not to get too excited. Excitement always gets me into trouble.

For example….

I cast on the second sock on Sunday while we conversed with my sweetie’s aunt and uncle, connecting with them after a decade. Brilliant conversation distracted me as I worked up an inch of the leg.

The next day dawned a little ouchy for the hands so I spent lots of time applying my CBD cream and mint oil. After a very abbreviated knitting session, I rested.

Tuesday brought its own effort with a visit to a new knitting group at my new local yarn shop, The Knitting Diva. I tried to be charming as I worked through the rest of the leg and into the heel flap. I don’t know if I succeeded, but the group seemed really quite nice.

Today? A little ouchy. I’m resting and rubbing again. And I’m making sure to sprint with my knitting (twenty minutes on, at least five minutes off). Sprinting seems to help keep my hands from getting too ouchy.

The second sock continues. With the Wimbledon semifinals and finals happening over the weekend, I may even complete the pair.

Wouldn’t that be something?
