Socks that Don't Rock

So, they're done...



The toes, in the pattern as written, are far too pointy. The second sock, after the cat fiasco involved five little balls of yarn cut away from that mess. Now to cast on something that ACTUALLY rocks...

I also sewed a messenger bag, but all the photos I've attempted to take of it have been absolutely dismal.

Oh, and let's not forget that I could be voting today, but my genius state and the national democratic party have given me a fiasco where I get a choice between Clinton, Kucinich, and "uncommitted." It pisses me off. This explains well what the hell is going on. Normally I'm excited about voting, but... not today. If you hear any pundits tonight saying "Clinton wins Michigan!" they're lying.

The voting system is very different to ours - I cannot understand it at all!

I think it's great you managed to rescue the socks!

Well done pressing onward with your socks. Now you can sleep in them or whatever you want to do with them!

I am amazed that your socks continued to try to spiral - did you try to match the pattern at all, or were you just slappin' those bits in there?
