Yes, that is a sock.
I concluded a long time ago that I am probably not a sock knitter. I tried knitting socks on dpns, and I came to the conclusion that I truly hate dpns. And I do mean HATE them. I dislike any knitting that is too complicated for me to lug along on my commute. And trying to pick up needles from under three seats back is beyond challenging. And people, for the most part, are not sympathetic to your dropped-needle-plight, so you are on your own in getting the needles back. I never did finish those first socks.
There are so many cute sock patterns out there (these, these, and the lacy socks from the new issue of Interweave...to name a few), that I decided that I would give it one more try. I am still not a big wearer of socks, but I would probably wear lacy socks, or I know a certain Bean that might like some funky socks. I signed up for the "Socks on Two Circulars" class at Knit Happens, and there before you is my first little sock. I was able to turn the heel, but now I am stuck and I need to call Holly for guidence. I can't possibly wait until my next class on Saturday! Since my gauge is ALWAYS too loose, I am doing these on 1's...probably need to drop to 0's (does Addi even make 0's?). The yarn is KnitPicks Dancing sock yarn in the "Jig" colorway. This yarn has tons of spring to it. I kind of like it. Reminds me of bungee cords.
I will never use dpns again. I swear. Seriously, the invention of circulars ranks right up there with the invention of dill pickles. Who would have ever thought a rotten cucumber could taste SO GOOD! Probably the same person who thought two sticks on a string would make sock knitting SO much easier!
