Sock #2 of 2010

The great thing about spending all day in the gym watching a gymnastic meet is the time I get to knit.  I never ever mind.
Stats:
#2 DPN
Sock Ease
Cuff down.  1″ ribbing, rest stockinette.
Gauge is 8 stitches per inch.
Circumference (of the ball of foot at widest point)  is 8.5 (I sized down 1″ to 7.5 for a nice perfect fit).
So..7.5 multiplied by 8 (stitches per inch) is 60.
60 is my cast on number.

Ready to go!

  
 

Amazing how much I got done in one day.  Picking up stitches after the heel was a better this time.  I have about 5 1/2″ on the foot now.  I should be able to kick this one out in the next day or so.  Good for me.

Stash Building:
Yup another package arrived.  This time from Knit Picks.

At $3.49 (219 yards!) a ball, of course I bought it.  Super soft!

Ohhh, I also forgot to post these as well:
