Finally...one sock

So many distractions and knitting has only been able to suvive on the commute. But with just 10 mins subway ride one-way... progress has been slow slow slow!!!

Yes, it took me a VERY long time, much concentration and many a subway rides. One sock down... and still one more to go. Eeek, the Christmas deadline is creeping up and at this rate, I don't know if I'll finish mommy's sock. The socks consists of a lattice pattern, which is easy to remember but difficult to knit without mistakes. Frustrating at times but I think the end product is quite satisfying, don't cha think?

The Debbie Bliss cabled cardigan is coming along. Half way done the sleeves... hope I can have an update in less than 2 weeks!

I think it's lovely! A little bit at a time is better than none at all, so don't give up, Peggy. Mom would be delighted to have these socks for Christmas.

It's great that you can use your commuting time to knit, even though is just 10 min. Look at your comfy sock! It's great to hear from you!
