With business in Stuttgart today, I took the train in a different direction. Even with a hike to the Straß stop, the train, the U5 and the U3. It still took me less time than the trip to Landstuhl. Since the DH was stopping by the kids’ school on his way home from the Bodensee (school ends next week and all three had more than a few items….) to pick up “stuff,” I was able to cage a ride home. The company in the car was lovely.
Construction on the A6 meant that it took almost two hours to drive home. A trip from downtown that takes 40 minutes on the train. Go figure, I can’t. But then they keep the slow trucks off the train tracks.
The Serpentines are done. I added detail on the heels. one with cables just down the sides of the heel flap, the other with multiple cables. On that second sock I was smart enough to change from cabling every three rows to every four. Just think about doing cables on the purl row and you will understand my reasoning.
I have both legs completed and am ready to start on the heel flaps. I am trying to decide between a modified common heel, a regular strap heel (with plain or fancy stitch). Since I have several samples that I don’t like, I can play with them before tackling the real yarn.
Exit Strategy by Kelley Armstrong. Not bad, a relatively quick read. But not up to the standard of her Otherworld Women books.
