Right now, it looks a mess—with 16 mini balls (8 per sock) of the various colors, PLUS the base yarn, with ends still not woven in—its all a bit chaotic.
And if history serves, it remains a bit chaotic—I
(By Round 2, It was a mess! my tentative post was edited to reflect that!) So I am off to organize –mini plastic bags, in side of medium ones—I'll see how that works.
The sock is a bit loose (64 stitches + the 8 I-cords) but the cabling will pull it in a bit.
A simple twisted cast on, and a few rounds of garter for the cuff. I have no idea how long I'll make the leg--(but I suspect I will aim for my usually 7 to 9 inches (7 inches before I start the heel flap, which will make up the last of 2 inches of the leg.)
These socks will take some time to knit—but I think they will be just wonderful when done!
This PM I go for my surgical follow up visit—I suspect it will be a long wait—but I have knitting—and after I'll head out to Tuesday night knitting—at least for a little while.
