Woohoo! My poor toe-less first sock got finished on my morning break. Toe grafting is not nearly as scary as it sounded. Oh happy day!
Also more progress on sock #2 - I've finished the first 9 rows, and even my ghetto paperclip stitch markers have been a great help.
I've also realized it's time to make a holder for my needles. I think I might venture into the land of fabric for this one - wish me luck.
