I tell ya, that second sock was a bear. Lots of practice un-knitting or ripping out and picking up again. And I screwed up on the reinforcing thread for one toe, which really tempts me to rip that out and redo it. But I. Won't.
Knitting is really hard if you're a perfectionist. Good thing I'm not.
Onward to starting over on that Magic Mess of a brown-and-orange sock below, on dpns.
And I couldn't resist winding up a skein of Koigu into a center-pull ball (thanks to the "Stitch 'n' Bitch" book, which taught me how). It's purple and yellow and green, which sounds vomitous but is really lovely. It might just end up on needles too.
