I have very good friends, who don't mind if I knit when I'm at their house for a Thanksgiving dinner.
And then don't even mind when I put my feet on their coffee table...
And an evening's worth of a knitting results in a sock ready for toe decreases.
(We were stopped at a red light when I took this photo; I can't imagine it's safe to do this in a moving car.)
The yarn is Paton's Kroy, col 55614, "Burnished Sierra Stripes". I LOVE THIS YARN. Love how it feels, love how it knits up, love how it wears, and this particular colourway is fantastic. Don't let the fact that it's sold in "chain stores" put you off.
When I say I love how it feels, don't get me wrong: this isn't about softness. It's not luxury-yarn soft, no. It's got a good woolly but not scratchy feel to it, and good density, so it gives great stitch definition. (There's a separate longer discussion here, but softness in sock yarn can often mean fragility.) Think Cascade 220, that sort of feel. This yarn is incredibly hardwearing. If you've not tried it, I recommend it. Although ignore the needle size recommendation on the ball band - go with your usual 2.25/2.5/2.75mm.
