It's not that I don't like potatoes or beer. Quite the opposite, in fact. It's just that I think I loved that pizza even more.

I love it. I can't believe how quickly it knit up. I'm not 100% thrilled with the gusset decreases on one side - I think I wasn't paying attention and purled where I should have knit, and they're all twisted and gimpy. I didn't notice it, really, till I was more than half-way done the foot. I wasn't sure what to do about it - leave it? Rip it out? Kick anyone who was close enough to notice it and say anything? (Coz they'd have to be right down at foot level anyway....)
