Proud to be a Canadian.
Also? I conquered the yarn diet!
And the stupid Flat Feet socks. You've heard of Flat Feet, right? Knitting directly from a flat piece of knitted fabric? Yeah, that stuff. Bleh! I received it in a swap a few years ago. These socks have been in my WIP basket for months. I'd work a few rows, get disgusted with the kinky fabric I was creating, turf the thing back in the basket. Not that the time out made it behave any better. Don't get me wrong: the person that sent it to me picked the perfect colour for me. I love the colours in these socks. Just the product is not my cup of tea. I've been working pretty steadily on these things for a few weeks just to get them done. It's never taken me weeks to finish a pair of socks. That's just nutty, but just shows you how much I dislike the product. The socks need to be soaked and blocked. I don't have sock blockers so a good soaking and stretching will have to do.
