From Cast on to Cuff

Well, almost to cuff. If the socks were for me, the cuff would be done and then some, but men's socks are bigger, so I want a deeper cuff. It stands at 2 inches now, and I'll continue in 2 X 2 ribbing till its 2.5 inches.

The jacquard pattern is not very evident in the 2 x 2 ribbing, so the bulk of the sock will be a wider ribbing. 6 X 2 I think, which will make a nice transition. It will enough ribbing to help keep the socks up, and snug. S-I-L has stated the previous socks fit, but I sometime think he is generally happy about the fit, and just doesn't realize he could make little complaints and perfect fit. Most people don't have a lot of experience with custom fitted clothing—and just don't expect perfect fit. So a little ribbing will keep the snug and better fitting.

The first potholder have moved from half done to 2/3rds done.
Finished, the potholder will have 3 diamonds, top to bottom.
Which sounds like progress, but really is just a 8 rows. 

 By tomorrow, it should be 3/4ths done—Unless I make more progress than I expect—I don't think it will be finished, but close. I won't bring it along on Friday to knit on the bus, I will keep it, and any other ones I knit till the kitchen is finished. I might bring some Command hooks too.
