I am going forward with my sockpal/cirque-du-socks socks in the baby cable rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. I've gotten the leg of one done and am working on the cuff of the second one.
I'm getting a little neurotic about these socks. I really want my sockpal to like them and I especially want them to fit. I've ripped them out about a dozen times by now and I'm still freaking out about the fit. If these were for me or anyone I actually knew, I wouldn't be so obsessed. I guess I want to make a good impression on the knitblogging community, so these socks are taking on a lot more importance than they really should for my own good. Last night, I was worrying about them again (and seriously considering ripping them out yet again and starting over) and Roommie told me to stop obsessing and keep knitting--they are fine. I guess I needed that.
I wish I could show you a picture but I stayed home from work today because I was still feeling ill this morning so I am stuck at home with a standard dial-up connection and don't feel like waiting the 2 hours it would take to upload the picture. I will post one later in the week.
