socky afghan progress

Took a vacation day from work, so I spent most of it crocheting together the first two rows in my sock yarn afghan. Like the last time I tried to see the finished size of a garter stitch project in my head - the circus tent sweater o' doom - I forgot yet again to allow for just how very stretchy garter stitch is. As more squares joined the party, the strip started stretching under its own weight. It's probably over seven feet long, definitely a good bit more than six. gazerwolf spread it out on the floor and laid down next to it to break me out of my denial. Fortunately he also offered a solution - rotate it 90 degrees, what was the bottom edge is now one of the long sides. One area he's definitely better in than me, spacial relationships.
