Thanks all of you!!!! I showed it to my co-workers yesterday (they are convinced that I'm a coo coo cachoo). I then showed them today, and they're response "I saw that yesterday".
I'm sitting there thinking "But I did 10 more rows!!!"
I haven't quite got the the sock addict yet, I'm still in the "please be a sock, please be a sock" phase.
Thanks for all of your support. Oh and Abbily, no worries, you're trying a sock, I'm trying a sock, you didn't hijack, you just discussed technique.
