Just as I predicted, I spent yesterday watching all of the inauguration festivities. It’s unusual for me to watch tv all day but it was worth it to see everything – from the Obamas leaving Blair House and going to church in the morning to their first dance at the Neighborhood Ball in the evening.
And, just as I predicted, I worked on the Crew Socks all day. And I finished. Yesterday morning I had knit 6 rounds of sock 2. I knit the leg all morning and by the time the Inaugural Luncheon was finished I was turning the heel.
While the Obamas watched the parade I finished the gusset decreases and made my way down the foot.
As they were dancing to “At Last” I was starting the toe decreases. And I was weaving in the ends when Robin Roberts interviewed President Obama. Whew!
That’s a lot of knitting (and tv watching) for one day but now I’ve got a finished pair of socks for my friend Lois and some great memories of the inauguration.
There’s just one thing. Lois is a Republican. Do you think she’ll still want these socks?
