The most boring part

The only part about knitting socks that I don’t like is making the cuff. It’s boring. All the rest just goes along but the cuff, it takes forever. I’m not super impressed by the heel flap either but that still goes by pretty quickly. Since I left off my sock-in-progress just after the cuff, it was great to pick it up again without having to knit that part. Maybe I could get someone else to knit the cuffs for me? I know someone who makes the cuffs, the heels and the toes for her mother’s socks, who is unfortunately not well enough to do them herself but she can do the leg and the foot. I also know that my great grandmother made the cuffs, heels and toe decreases for my great aunts when they were kids, they were great at knitting but too young to handle the more fiddly bits. Well, I’m a grown-up healthy woman so I can’t get away due to age nor health. And I am grateful that I’m healthy enough to do my own cuffs, I really am, but that doesn’t mean they are not boring. Oh well, I guess it’s something one has to do, just like weaving in ends and sew things. After all, it really doesn’t take that long considering the entire sock. It’s still two cuffs though…
