However, one, when it comes to stripey socks, is enough to make me pretty damn happy for the time being! I decided to just knit the whole skein and hope it ended up tall enough. Kinda, but not really. I think knee socks sort of need to come up to the point where your calf starts decreasing, but these sort of end a bit before that. I fear they'll end up slipping down and being saggy, which may also be cute in a japanese sort of way. I dunno - I don't think the solution is to make them tighter with elastic thread, but maybe some of that clear gripper stuff that's recommended for those unbelievable lace socks in the latest Vogue.
Anyway, now that this is off the needles for the time being, I really need to get back to the Gabriella before Mother's Day rolls around!
