goodbye old friend

Goodbye to the first pair of socks I knitted from sock yarn. Opal sock yarn, knitted in the fall of 2000. Guess I got my money's worth and enjoyment from them.

Yes, I could darn these holes in the heel and toes.
But after seven and half years of regular wear, I guess it's time for them to go.

I'm enjoying knitting Rogue. I love the color - it's much prettier than this photo. (After sunset photography makes accurate color difficult.)

Last, but not least, Osterdalen continues to grow.

Only about 3 more inches of plain black stockinette to go.

Wow! A demanding schedule, home improvements and you still make some serious progress on the black hole knitting project. I bow in abject worship . . .

I'm convinced you have found a way to knit stockinette in your sleep. That's the only way I could get so much done.

Sad to hear about the socks. I wore through my first pair a couple of years ago.
