Projects are progressing, but are not even near to be completed. I did finish one sleeve on the sweater and have started the second. I will have a good chunk of time to knit today, so hopefully I will get far on that.
As for the sock goes, I have made it this far...
Too far, if you ask me. I should have stopped before I turned the heel.
This sock is so big. It doesn't even fit me! I really don't want to keep going and make it bigger because then it means it will be a few years before my son can even wear it.
My plan is to create a lifeline all the way back up to the color work and frog the sock back up that far. Then I think I'll decrease at least 10 stitches to make the leg tighter. I also want to change up the pattern in the paneling portion of the pattern on the leg. Those long "lines" that you see are slipped stitches over several rows. I can just imagine an active teen boy snagging one of those slipped stitches and ripping it. I really do not want to redo the color work, so I'm thinking of getting some elastic thread to weave through there to tighten it up too. I also do not like how big the heel is. I think I'll resize that too.
Fortunately, my son is very patient.
