knee sock with dog


knee sock with dog, originally uploaded by swandive00.

behold my sock in progress (SIP?). it's a knee sock and there's no end in sight. to contain my giant filipino calves i'm knitting forever and the row gauge is deceiving because it shrinks when it's being worn. i have about 2.5 more inches in the leg (as you wear it, not as you knit it) until i do the 2" cuff. pattern filched and adapted from here (i found the stripeys to be quite beguiling)... however, she does 8 increase rows (increasing 2 stitches every 10 rows), and i've already done 14 increase rows (2 stitches every 8 rows) and have at least 3 or 4 more sets of increases before i can stop making them grow. and our gauge is exactly the same.

the yarn is the opal uni in grey and fortissima socka in the light blue, being done on addi turbo US0 needles. i don't know if i'll make a second sock.

heck, i have no idea if i'll even finish the first.
