Well now that's a descriptive title isn't it? More clearly: I'm in California attending a conference this week so this is a pre-written and scheduled post about the Emergency Work socks.
These have just been sitting on my desk, worked on when the computer is taking 3 minutes to load something or I just need to listen while on a phone call, times like those. There aren't a whole lot of those but I've made it through about 50 rows on the leg so far. Another 15 or so and I'll start the heel flap. From experience, I can get through ~70 rows on the leg to do the size foot I want to do and not run out of yarn. I think I could probably get 71-72 rows in at most, but I'd really rather not get to the last three rows on the toe and be out of wool.
Size 0 (2.0mm) needles continue to be very small, particularly when compared to the size 1.5 (2.5mm) needles I was using for the Night Sky Socks.
The sock has gotten to meet a couple of new coworkers in the past few weeks, and it has my plants, all of which are robustly growing again to keep it company. I must remember when I hit the heel to dig out the other skein of wool and bring it into the office. So, you know, in mid-May :-p
New socks on the needles when I get back!
