No, don’t panic. I am not starting my sockapalooza again. I am still pleased as I work my way down the second leg.
It is the rain. For the fourth time today the clouds have rolled in and the rain has come down. I should be happy that I am not standing out there or out walking to my PT appointment like yesterday.
I am up to the cast off for the neck. I need to look at it some more, because it does not look right. I think I may just knit another row of squares. I am more than willing to have the sweater a bit too long, but not the front part too short. Or, I need to go and measure some sweaters as there is 12 cm difference in length between starting the under arm and casting off for the neck. I am actually two rows beyond that. It should be ok (hopefully).
Worked on the Serpentine for a short time today, only managing to get the gussets completed. I like the pattern, quick and fun. Cables every third row are a real pain, let me tell you when you decide to carry them down the heel flap.
And then there is my cute new sock pamphlet. I am calling it what to do with all of my left over yarn!
If you already do sort of entrelac, it is fun for the ideas. If you don’t, it is not something you want if you don’t read German. It was my small present to me from www.amazon.de. The rest of the package were books and CDs for my husband’s birthday. Without the kids home, he is having an extremely quiet birthday, most of it consumed with business. You can’t ignore 59 years however. He gets his party on Sunday.
Red, I really like red. And Cherry Tree Hill yarn. It has such a lovely twist. I went ahead and started the cuff on the second sock before proceeding down the heel. This way, since the pattern was sort of – do as you go – the legs are more likely to match.
