I can't seem to put these socks down. I'd be closer to being completed if I hadn't gotten the bright idea of reinforcing the heels and toes...but with what? I looked for my neutral reinforcement stuff and it wasn't with the rest of the stash. So yes, I thought I would just hold the yarn double throughout the heel and toe. It sounds innocuous enough, right?
Well, when I tried to find the inside end of the skein...out came this ginormous clump o' green yarn. I mean huge...as in derail-the-knitting-for-a-good-30-minutes-while-trying-to-unravel-this-maze-and-puzzle-of-a-yarn-tangle. ugh. Then of course I repeated said aggravation when I tried to find the end of the other skein. Tack another 40 minutes of untangling!! I think I should win a prize in patience, that's for sure. I finally unwound each...put the ends into center-pull balls and stuffed them back into the skeins. Man.
As if it wasn't challenging enough to knit both socks on one circular off of two different skeins and keeping THOSE untangled. Now I am dealing with both ends of each skein...egad.
But at least I can tell you that I've turned the heels on both socks. I won't have to worry about keeping all four ends of the skeins untangled until I reach the toes...
I think this is the fastest that I've ever worked on a pair of socks!! Go leaves go!! Okay I am breaking for coffee. I haven't had any yet and my head is killing me.
