I'll confess that there hasn't been much progress on my Denmark sock. After knitting the first sock almost to the heel I decided to rip it out entirely and reknit adding one repeat to each side of the sock to bring the round to 72 stitches. That's a much better number considering I'm knitting this sock with lighter yarn and smaller needles than the pattern suggests.
Things have been too busy around here to get much knitting done. Last week the pressure was on to push through as much work as possible before I started my two week vacation on Friday. Saturday we picked up my brother at the airport - he's flown in for a week-long visit from Fredericton. What little knitting time I've had has been devoted to my red sweater, which I'm happy to report should be completed later today or sometime tomorrow. With the sweater off the needles I should have more time for this sock. And then there's the fact that Christmas is just 48 days away ... better get a move in! Expect a big update next week!
