Imagine that title as if Keanu were saying it in The Matrix. That's how it sounds in my head.
This is what made me say/hear it:
I cast on this sock at approximately noon today. And just bound off, before midnight. No, I did not work on this all day -- I would venture to guess it took less than 4 hours to knit from start to finish. There's certainly something to be said for knitting socks on thicker yarn and bigger needles!
That said, my design didn't work in this gauge and the 2 colors are too close to show the detail. I gave it up and just worked plain socks with a gusset short row heel and ribbed cuff. I also realized that this is too thick a sock for my taste: it's quite heavy and feels more like a slipper than a sock. I will probably wear these to bed in the winter, they're definitely too thick to wear in shoes.
If you're wondering about the design, I worked out all the details and will try again on normal sock yarn, with more contrasting colors, sometime soon. AND the design process produced another colorwork sock design, so you may be seeing more than one sock design around these parts in the near future . . . although you should know that when I say "in the near future," I really mean After Wedding. Meaning late August at the earliest.
Impressive! It takes me more than a week to knit a sock at DK weight. Bah! Great looking sock too! Congrats
Oh, love the colors you used. One of my fave also.
And btw, I love listening to the rain upstairs on my roof window(ok, haven’t finished my first cup of java and brain is blank.. Im sure you know what I am talking about..
Very cute socks- I can’t believe they only took 4 hours! Great job.
I love that sock! It looks as comfy as it is pretty! :)

Wow, a sock in 4 hours. But then, I never could figure out how people wore those socks I have seen online that were knit in worsted weight yarn! I forgot about the wedding when I tagged you today with a meme — sorry about that. See my blog if you want to do it.
