Knitting and the World Series

I've been working on the reversible cabled afghan when I've been home, but lately, with the World Series, I haven't been home (because we don't have a tv). So, instead, I've been working on my black socks. I think the knitting of socks encourages the mojo of the Sox.

I finally decided to knit the black socks in a fairly simple pattern. I was going to learn a new pattern for the toe from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. Instead, in the first sock, I knit a french toe. Then I decided I didn't like it. So on the second sock, I did a flat toe and am now reknitting the toe of the first sock. As you can tell, I'm almost done. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

In non-knitting news I've been a very faithful Red Sox fan. Last night was almost embarassing when the pitcher for the Rockies walked 3 Sox in to make the score 13-1. I felt like we should have given those last 3 back. But they're ours now. And we'll need them, I think, as we head to Colorado.
