You'll notice over on the right there that I'm actually signed up for the next round of the sock a month KAL, and that the end of the month is fast approaching. Fortunately, the end of the sock is fast approaching too:
Solstice Slip Socks
And I've made a bit of progress since taking this picture--I'm about to turn the heel.
You know, I think I make my socks shorter than other knitters (or at least short compared to my foot length). When I fold my socks in half at the heel, my cuffs tend to be a couple of inches shorter than the foot--they only reach to the end of the toe increases (assuming a toe-up sock), even with ribs.
I don't think it's because I'm impatient to be done and/or lazy about knitting long cuffs, just that going further up the calf seems to raise the chances that socks will fall down, increase the amount of fabric that's available to bunch around the ankle, and not improve anything. At least--not for me, since I don't think my calves are usually cold (not that I can remember what does get cold, since it's summer).
Yet another handy case where my possible laziness and apparent preferences coincide to make things easier for me (or where my laziness is so all-encompassing and embedded that it convinces the rest of me that the easier option is better... but wouldn't that be a lot of work?).
Speaking of getting cold, by neck definitely does get cold, and this will come in handy as human caulk.
TdF Scarf & Vespa
You can just barely tell from this picture that there's a second lace border on my Tour de France scarf, and that it's semi-blocked, at last!
