Let’s Do the Time Warp Again!

Do you knitters out there ever feel like you’re entering a knitting time warp? I’m talking about a space of time where suddenly you have accomplished a huge chunk of your project and you’re just not sure how it happened! Last night I sat down to work on the koigu sock. At the time I was still working my way down the leg.KoiguSockProgress.jpg See this picture? I put the needle at yesterday’s starting point. By the time I put the sock down for the night I had finished the leg, knit the heel flap, turned the heel, picked up the gusset stitches, finished the gusset decreases and knit a few rounds of the foot. I’m not the world’s fastest knitter (nor am I a particularly slow knitter) but I think my accomplishment last night was pretty cool. Especially since it took a month to finish the first sock. I’m already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this one and I only started it last Wed.
So now the possibilities of new socks are running around in my head. There’s the purple self-striping yarn I bought ages ago to go with my purple fleece top, there’s the unidentified handpainted sock yarn I bought at Knit Wits last month, there’s several different colors of Sock It To Me that I bought from elann and there’s some Lang Jawoll Sock Yarn in a blue stipe and that has reinforcement thread which I’ve never used before. Then there are the patterns I’ve been wanting to try, like the mismatched striped socks from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush and the Best Foot Forward pattern from Knit Socks! by Betsy McCarthy. Oh my, such possibilities, I don’t know how I’ll choose!
I will definitely be inspired to knit on!
