Chugging up the Mountains: Tour de France Knit Along

I managed to cross the first mountain peek while Mark Cavendish was winning his third stage and started down hill while he was winning his fourth. Hey if he keeps this up, I might just finish the socks!
The second sock is looking much neater then the first. I've taken a different strategy for eliminating the blue/purple from the mix which involves actually cutting the yarn and throwing the shorter pieces in where I only need a short stretch of yarn. I've also taken to hiding some of the ends as I go. Not all, but some. Hey, every little bit counts, right?

Of course, it counts!

You are doing so well with those socks. I can't wait to see how they turn out.

You're just zipping right along! I thought they were stranded. Yikes, lots of ends. I save ends for when I'm too tired and stupid to knit but can still manage a bit of fiber.

Wow that is a lot of ends to weave in, but the socks are gorgeous and so worth it.

Hugs!!!
