I bound off a sock tonight. It's made with Regia Pompon (not pompoM, mind you) yarn, which is pretty much if Fancy Fur was sock yarn. It's interesting, certainly, but I'll never be able to get shoes on with it. So they're slipper socks. I made them as the second go at an entry in the plain knit socks category at the fair. I just didn't feel like the self-striping ones had enough pizazz. Last year, my blue ribbon winners were made with sparkly yarn, and that totally nailed it for me (Patons Brilliant, FYI). So I made giant knee socks for no reason and wasted a week. Eh, whatever. Usually I'd follow that up with "it's not like I had anything better to do," but this week, I actually do. I have those four days of subbing. Of course, it's midnight now and I have to get up at 6:15, but I accidentally slept until 11:38 this morning and I just can't force myself to sleep even if I know I have to get to bed. I'll just be a little draggy in the morning, but anxiety will certainly keep me alert. Especially if I have to wipe anyone. Dear god.
