I'm knitting a pair of socks for my friend's grandson. A lot of his things go missing at his day care center, even though his name is written inside his clothes, as someone is always saying that they didn't know that they were his. I'm knitting his name right into the sock, so no one can claim them.
I never remember which decreases belong on each side of the sock, so I've made myself two simple stitch markers. A 'K' for k2tog and a 'S' for the sl1, k1, psso that is called for in the pattern. My decreases don't match. I have to find something better to look like my k2tog.
