Okay, I really have no idea how you would convey the sentiment “you know what” as in “these socks that are kind of starting to get old” in French, so I just made something else. Don’t tell my high school French teacher or she might make me do pushups (although technically, that was a punishment for sleeping. And only one that was applied if the sleeping party were male. Technically girls had to do situps for sleeping but the fact that I sat in the very front row and did situps not a single time is testament to the fact that girls were not punished for sleeping in class at all. Nous avons besoin de notre dormir de beaute, or something…).
I’m onto the leg of #2. However, I also decided that really, the legs need to be longer than poor #1 is at the moment. So, I caved and bought a third skein of Shibui, with the plan of adding a couple of extra inches to each leg. Of course, this development means no way are the socks going to be done in time (that would be…oh…tomorrow), but I think it’s a worthwhile delay, no?
