Joining the Knitting Olympics

OK, so I'm dense... Three days late but I finally got around to looking up this thing called the Knitting Olympics. Wouldn't you know the first site returned would be the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I love her site.

Well, I'm going to try this Knitting Olympics thing. By the end of the closing ceremonies I have to finish my project--lace socks. As it happens I did cast on a new project during the opening ceremony so I'm OK with the rules that far.

Anyone who knows me knows that finishing a project in a set amount of time will be quite a challenge for me. I am severely focus-challenged when it comes to knitting. With upwards of 12 UFOs in my knitting corner, I usually work on something different every time I sit down.

The sock I'm knitting is the February pattern for the Yahoo message group Six Socks a Year. I'll post my progress pic here as it changes.

Here's my progress as of today:

One partial leg done. Off to do some more.

On your pic of sock, you don't mention the size of the needle. It looks like a very small size one!! Very impressive..

Needle size is US 2. The pattern calls for US 2 for leg and US 1.5 or 1 for the heel and foot, keeping 2 for the instep.
