Today, Monday, the 20th of February, I have completed Sock Two, and have more than met my Olympic goal---my first sock. I have now completed my first pair of socks! Here they are!

Despite the appearance in the second pic, Sock One and Sock Two are actually the same size! I checked! It is just that little magic that happens when one thing is closer than the other thing.

I finished at just after 9 p.m. this evening. All ends woven in, etc. It is such a relief! I will continue to knit, probably smaller socks for younger children. There is still a skein of this yarn, and I have a somewhat decent amount of yarn left from this first skein--not enough for another sock this size, but maybe for a little little kid sized sock! Hurrah!

Meanwhile.....CONGRATULATIONS, CANADA, ON YOUR WOMEN'S ICE HOCKEY GOLD MEDAL! What a game, and how exciting it all was! I am so happy for you all!

Be sure to scroll down and read my original post for the day, if you haven't already seen it! By the way, by the time I got off the computer from posting the first time, the sun was out. So pretty!
