Then I hit this unhappy spot with Margaret and I had to clear my mind and get rid off the bad thoughts to be able to continue happily and I also needed some time to think over how to accomplish the necessary changes for the second time around. To keep my hands busy I picked up the other sock.
It was such a good experience. The yarn, Araucania Ranco, was so pleasing to knit with. The sock was finished in a few hours instead of a few weeks.

And then I had to go to look for some new sock yarn from the pile and I knit another pair. Although this time around it took a lot more time but the result was so worth the effort.

Knitting these socks and taking a break from Margaret was a clever move. While battling with little needles and twisting the cables, Margaret started to feel appealing again and last night I took it out of the basket and she is getting lots of attention right now.
But socks? Yes, I am sure they will happen from time to time and my feet feel very fortunate.
