not about being a genius, but about Dad's socks being HUGE...because once they were off the needles, I tried them on...and they fit ME. Are a little tight, even. So I have giant freakish Sasquatch feet...argh.
One Dad sock is done, and I'm on the toe of the other. The Sister's Boyfriend socks are blocked and now I have to weave in the ends and send them. Hopefully that won't take longer than knitting them did, although with me it easily could.
I made myself a list of things I'd like to try in 2007 (knitting things, I mean):
*Try out non-Knitpicks sock yarn, especially: Trekking, Lorna's Laces, Koigu. I may be missing one or two here. Basically anything that IS NOT KNITPICKS! I love Knitpicks but I need to branch out.
*Cables! Still haven't done them, ever.
*More socks, and experiment with toes and heels besides short-row. I don't always like the appearance of heel-flaps, but I'm sure they have some advantages (um, anyone know what those might be?) and I should at least know how to do them.
*Dyeing my own (sock) yarn.
*Do some KALs and somewhat social things (even if they only exist in cyberspace - that's close enough, and possibly too close, for socially awkward me).
*Try Magic Loop on two circulars instead of one
*Elizabeth Zimmerman Moccasin socks. I have some pretty yarn that I've heard can felt on the soles, so these seem like the perfect solution.
*I have another sock idea I must try, but I'm keeping that secret until I see if it works!
