I’m a Tolstoy Novel!

Here I am, ready to graft the almost-done socks….

Notice the poor, bare feet– in dire need of socks!

I went with a strategy of separating the stitches, but not separating the socks before grafting. I grafted the inside sock first, then the outside sock:

When done, it looked a lot like I had completed a sock!

Oh, what’s this?

Turn the outer sock inside out, and…

Look! There’s another sock hiding inside!

No wai?

WAI!!!

Because I was struggling when I first started these socks, I moved to the heel fairly quickly. As a result, they are more like anklets:

Which is totally fine, because I like anklets, and these socks fit just fine. Perfectly, even– nice and snug without being tight! I lurve them.

Alladin shares his lack of amusement with my socks. What has him so annoyed? The answer is obvious: with the socks done, I am no longer playing with string.

Not to worry, Alladin. I have plenty more knitting where that came from!
