And Representing the Canadian Sock Knitting Team
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
Probably inappropriate to quote American President Theodore Roosevelt whilst claiming a small victory for the Canadian Sock Knitting team, but the sentiment seems so fitting.
Success, like failure is rarely complete. This pair of socks compromised my neck tendons, blinded my 40 year old eyes and gave me the invaluable gift of humility (thanks to what is quite possibly the ugliest Kitchener Stitch toe I have ever witnessed).
So, I offer up this pair of socks at the altar of Olympic Knitting competition. They aren't perfect, not by a longshot, but they are FINISHED...and...
Oddly enough, they are sort of symmetrical!
