If you have to work in between Christmas and New Year’s, I hope you get to sit and watch a webinar for one of the days. Although I didn’t knit through the entire webinar (I did some actual productive multitasking) there were times when I couldn’t continue printing since the other attendees would hear me. When this happened I picked up my sock and knit.
And although he didn’t seem to be crazy about the colorway (it seemed to trigger some 70’s childhood related flashbacks – which might somewhat explain the all black uniform), my boss did condone the knitting. I think he realized that me watching a webinar on payroll so that I can be backup for our Finance Director was a bit of agony. Let’s face it, doing payroll is not my idea of fun.
The sock yarn is Socks That Rock in A Very Scummy Christmas. I got this and another skein (Hobbit Garden) from my parents for Christmas. I’m doing another pair of Houdini Socks. I haven’t decided how I’m doing the leg of the sock yet though. I know I won’t use the Houdini Sock leg that Cat Bordhi has in the pattern as that doesn’t do much for me. The last time I knit these I did a 2×2 rib, which seems a little dull for these 70’s throwback socks. Any ideas for me?
