Done and done...

I finished my calorimetry while I was out of town; it's a bit wider than expected because I lost track and ended up doing a few extra repeats of the short rows, and didn't feel like ripping it back. I'll get Kyle to take the mandatory "Calorimetry in Use" photo tomorrow.And I finished my Resolution Socks today. Knit from Trekking XXL sock yarn using 2mm bamboo dpns, pattern from an old Patons booklet. I could have easily added another 1-1.5 inches to the calf, based on the amount of yarn I have left. And I don't think I'm ever going to knit 4 inch folding cuffs again, either!! (At least not if I'm knitting the socks for myself using 2mm needles with a gauge of 10.5 stitches per inch)You know that there's a difference in the sock colour when your colourblind husband notices it unprompted. Since I am participating in the Socktopia Knitalong, I am renaming the finished products the "Blue Monday" socks, with 2 rationalizations for the appropriateness of the name: 1) approximately 1/7 of the yarn is blue in colour (and Monday is 1/7 of the week), and 2) The New Order song was 7.5 minutes in length and seemed to go on forever; because of my foot length, I had 7.5 inches to knit once I finished the heel before I could start the toe shaping, and I tell you, it REALLY seemed to go on forever!

Wow. I don't know what freaks me out more. The fact you thought about the rationalization to make those socks Blue Monday socks or the fact you cranked them out so quick!!!
