IN PROGRESS

Sock knitters will notice that the colorways on the two socks match up exactly, which gives me so much joy.

"Sock knitters will notice that the colorways on the two socks match up exactly, which gives me so much joy."

And I sit here comparing the two to see if you were right...(*sigh*).

BTW, nice.

I compared the two too. I believe Sarah, so I was just testing my eyes, though I am prone to see what I want to see.

The sock on the left looks like a tepee! Just found the etymology of that word:

The word "tipi" comes into English from the Lakota language; the word thpi consists of two elements: the verb th, meaning "to dwell," and a pluralizing enclitic (a suffix-like ending that marks the subject of the verb as plural), pi, and means "they dwell." In Lakota, formal verbs [words that look like they should be verbs] can be used as nouns, and this is the case with thpi which in practice just means "house."

According to this pronunciation guide, Lakota "th" sounds like English "t" (but not "th" as in "thin" or "within") and "" with an accent is like an English "ee."

I'm so excited! I'm taking a sock-knitting class from a friend next month! I've wanted to learn to knit socks for some time now I've been knitting in the round longer than I've been knitting, um, straight?, so I'm hoping it's not too challenging to figure out socks. :)

I still need to learn how to make a hat . . .
