WIP Wednesday #5 - Hi Ho

I have a HO, or Half-Object, if you prefer.  A term coined by the Stockinette Zombies.  A term they actually had to "clarify" or "defend" recently.  Apparently some were offended by the term, but personally I'll use it with gusto! Especially since it took so long to get here!  Last entry talked about ripping out the toe.  Well, that was only the first time!  Had to cut and frog the toe twice, but I will say it was totally worth it.  I'm taking notes on the measurements and plan to use this pattern a lot more.  The only problem I foresee now, is that I did the heel then went back and finished the toe, had some bits of yarn cut out, so now the second sock will not in fact, match, as it should. It's a HO, with a perfect fit though!  Here's my HO.

Yarn: Dyed by me, Sock Blank from Knit Picks
Pattern: Laura Linneman's Afterthought Heel Socks

Linking up today with WIP Wednesday.  Also worth a mention is that Vogue Knitting Live was this past weekend.  Many people had the wonderful opportunity to attend, which I was not one of.  But Maria of the Subway Knits podcast did, and has a few wonderful blog posts about the event and an interview.  I urge you to go check them out.  Especially if you are like me and have to live vicariously through other knitters!


  1. HA! It took me several re-reads and contemplation to consider why some might be offended by the term HO. LOL I'm a flake. The sock looks great!

  2. LOL, I love your HO! See, you learn something new everyday :)
