I have finished the leg of the first sock in the Retro Rib pattern. It's an easy pattern to memorize. I just needed a postie to keep track of how many times I went through the pattern. The heel looks a little weird, though. I can't figure out why it is knit one, slip one all the way across. Maybe I'm reading the pattern wrong. The Montana Wool is an absolute dream to work with. It is so soft and luxurious. Unfortunately, I've discovered that I'm allergic to the wool. Bummer! I get horrible headaches and a sore throat when working with it. I picked up a few masks to wear while knitting so hopefully that will help me finish the project. I just spent way too much money on this wool to let it sit. If the masks don't work I'll have to find someone to finish them for me.
