Defeated.

I am out. My opponent beat me. There are strategic mistakes I made:
  • using a fingering/sport yarn makes for more stitches than a "true" sportweight
  • feeling rushed at the start due to errands that I had to make and thus making a mistake in the pattern that more careful reading would have avoided
  • going to Bobaknit Thursday night- well not really, that was fun and they are my cheerleaders - that was my "represent" moment I guess!
  • having early morning plans for both Friday and Saturday meant I couldn't stay up as late the night before

But really I just had too many things to take care of in the last couple of days and since Bryan was out of town I had no one to share the burden. Oh well. Now I can finish the socks at my leisure and cheer from the sidelines. (Dang!)

We will now return to our regularly scheduled blogging...

You did better than I. I just finished sock one last night. I cast on for sock two but I am not at home and forgot my pattern. Also, the second ball of yarn. I like your socks! The pattern is fun too. I will also make it again, maybe in fingering weight. I think we were at a disadvantage from the start being on the West Coast. My rival finished her socks before I got home from work on Friday afternoon.
