Two Goat Herder Socks

I finished the second sock for my goat-herder son Friday night, with about 12 hours to spare before he arrived home for the holidays.

But do you see the small butterfly of yarn? That’s all that was left of the 100-gram skein. I was sweating the last few inches of the second sock, afraid that I’d run out of yarn. I kept knitting faster and faster, with the misguided idea that the faster I knitted, the longer the yarn would last. Who knows, maybe it worked!
