I think that one of the most rewarding and frustrating features, of Ravelry.com, is the fact that you can see how long you have spent in your projects. I say it is good, sometimes it actually gives me motivation to finish things up. Sometimes it gives me the conviction to frog them if I need to. I think is all good , because you can always restart or redo a project. These socks I started in June 4, 2011, and I am really looking forward to finishing them today. This project is a free pattern and it is worth your time. I would try the sock every two or three rounds, but I made sure that I was leaving enough play in the rounds. A sock that is Fair Isle will be too tight to wear if you are not careful. At any rate, I am glad I am ending this project , so that I can start my Portuguese Style socks later on. I am looking forward to starting socks using the Andrea Wong method. Thanks for stopping by!
