WIP: Stashbusting Socks


So this afternoon I'm hanging out in a public library, reading up on couturiers from different periods for a school assignment, drooling over knitting books, and knitting a sock.  Hooray!  I started this sock just a few days ago as easy travel knitting.  I bought the yarn (Socks That Rock Lightweight in colorway G-Rocks) way back in 2007, and after four or five failed attempted to make them into Jaywalkers - a pattern which, alas, is not meant for my giant feet and teeny ankles - I tore them out and shoved the yarn into a deep, dark corner of my stash.


I feel rather clever about finally knitting these socks up, especially since the skein is apparently tagged on Ravelry as yarn I want to knit up in 2013.  Of course, I have only a very fuzzy recollection of doing this, so it makes me feel triply smart that a) I had enough forethought to make these a stash goal, b) I had an unplanned and sudden desire to knit them into something, which then resulted in c) my actually knitting them into something.  I have hit no snags; they have not been abandoned; I don't even hate them.  This sort of stash-busting success is kinda unprecedented.

Now, it remains to be seen what happens with the second sock...
