the second Popsicle sock
I'm well into the leg of my second Popsicle sock. With baby bobbles every four rounds, it's easy enough to keep track of the round numbers to match it up to the first sock. Looks like I'll be using about a quarter of the second skein - possibly leaving me enough for a pair of child's size socks. I wonder if I'm clever enough to adapt the pattern to a smaller size? We'll see about that in the new year. Ideally I'd like to finish this sock in the next day or two, leaving me clear to finish the emergency Christmas sweater. With two weeks left until Christmas, there may still be enough time after that to knit another pair of socks, and maybe a pair of mitts.
