I am currently in a project of sock knitting. This is for the hubby. I had him try the sock on last night just to see where I really am in the leg portion of the sock. These are toe up socks which I haven't done for a couple of years. It is a challenge to change up my sock making these days.
We had a conversation when I first started the socks and he tells me he wants the leg to be 9 inches long. Say what? Yes, 9 inches long. So, I am trying to convince the man that 6 inches will be enough for the leg...no, he wants those 9 inches. I get him to try the sock on last night and I have 6 inches of leg done, he tells me they are perfect. I wanted to smack the crap out of him over this....we have been arguing over it for the whole time I am knitting this king size sock. Now, he tells me he wants the 6 inch leg. Grrr!
I then asked the important question of if he wants k1, p1 ribbing or k2, p2 ribbing. Eye roll. He chose the k2, p2 ribbing. I haven't made a pair of socks with that particular ribbing in about 5 years. So, he will get a unique pair of socks with his own custom measurements.
As for anyone else wanting socks...NO! I have to make Maribeth a pair and then I am not knitting anyone else socks. I am closed where socks are concerned. I have plans to get my niece, Meagan a sock loom. She can make her own socks. I have pretty much put my foot down where this is concerned. I am tired. My hands are tired. I don't want to knit anyone anything.
I have to finish my charity mitts and then I am done with that. No one else is going to get anything out of me for the rest of the year.
