It's a teeny tiny little sock/shoe thing! It's only twelve stitches around but still has a little turned heel. I haven't sewn up the toe yet and the "cuff" stitches are on a piece of dental floss that I'm using as a stitch holder. What the heck is this for? It's the beginning of a "dog" toy for Annie Modesitt's new book Men Who Knit (and The Dogs Who Love Them . . .). I'm doing this project for Annie while waiting for the yarn for a larger project to arrive. I'm looking forward to the larger project, but this one is pretty entertaining. (I'm actually much farther along now, but I'm too lazy to take more photos)
As you can see, Scout thinks that the sock is already a good cat toy.
In a funk
I'm pretty depressed these days, probably because of work. I'm in such a crappy mood that I don't even want to knit. In fact, knitting and knitting related stuff has been contributing to my grumpy, irritable mood. Playing with the twisty neck collar was annoying, winding crazy novelty yarn was a disaster (more on that later), my needles always seem to be too grabby or not grabby enough for the things I am working on now, and my super secret project is boring me to death. However, knitting continues because I'm being paid and the holidays are approaching. I think this is foreshadowing the feelings I will have once I quit my icky job and become a freelancer trolling for anything that pays.
