I really only have one portable project right now, which is the Man Socks, and in addition to constant second-guessing of self regarding the wisdom of choosing 2x2 rib (mind-bogglingly slow and dull to knit yet ideal for gifting to a Man whose foot and ankle circumferences are unknown) I regard the Man Socks with
Yes. Because I don't know how long I can go on this ankle before I have to turn the heel in order to have enough yarn for the toes.
I had been thinking I could use up about half the weight of the cake - so far I'm only about 15 grams in to I think 58 grams. But does that view hold heel-turning and the yardage therein in sufficient high regard? Gah.
Worst case: I can plunder the matching denim blue yarn I got at the same time and was intending to use for a pair of socks for Bob for his August birthday (clearly, Not Gonna Happen). Might look a little weird though, just having it at the toe and nowhere else.
And I'd still like to try to knit socks for Bob.
Which means I really need to finish Man Socks soon. Maybe they should be my July travel knitting?
Or maybe I should stop sewing tote bags?
While I was taking pictures of Man Sock for this post there was a 5-point-something earthquake that shook the nearby building of the friend who called to ask how strong it was here and then had to explain to me that there was a 5-point something earthquake just minutes before. Yep, I didn't even notice it happening. I am way too focussed on knitting.
