It’s almost impossible to tell from the angle of the picture (I couldn’t find a ruler shorter than my yardstick, which will not fit into my lightbox) but that’s 6 whole inches of nearly painless stockinette stitch there.  And isn’t the Shibui Knits yarn beautiful?


Now I’m sad that I’m about to start the interesting part of the sock.  This is a completely unexpected feeling.  I guess the next book will have to wait until the second sock!
