Second flamingo sock

traveling sock

I don’t know what it’s been like in the rest of the country, but this summer has been the year of non-stop summer rain in New York. Like EVERY DAY. I think we need to build an ark soon.

Here’s my latest second sock. I like knitting socks because they have definite stopping points…knittttttttttt and then the heel, turn the heel, and then knittttttttt the rest of the sock. Rinse and repeat. And you’re done! Whereas other projects sometimes seem a little endless. I knit lots of my socks of the subway, where people like to talk to each other about my sock knitting all of the time. Especially older women–they’re always telling their family members how they, too, can knit socks. I’m like living history on the subway. Maybe I should charge to watch me on the subway! Hah!

    Send us your rain! It’s been so hot here, it’s insane. I love the sock and the picture.

    This guy might get even more remarks than you

    though I suspect most of them are whispered. While admittedly it’s not a very competitive category, he could be the world’s most intimidating knitter.
