This reading and knitting thing is going much better than I expected. When I started this experiment, I had about half an inch after the toe of this sock completed. After a few short hours of reading and knitting, I finished my book and knit 4 inches of stockinette without any of the mind-numbing, insanity-producing brain spasms that I usually get!
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!
