Slowly but surely the sock's coming along. Just finished the gusset decreases and worked half the first chart repeat for the top of the foot. And like so many other things, it looks harder than it is.
But what amazes me is how many people have asked whether it's worth it. "Wouldn't it be easier to just buy socks?" Which is really missing the point, isn't it? Using that logic how would you justify doing a crossword puzzle or playing golf. It's leisure. It's creative. It's not meant to be an efficient or economical way of making socks. For the hours of enjoyment I'm deriving from knitting this sock, it's darn good value for my entertainment dollar.
