It took this little snail longer to make it across the one step than it did for me to make it the flight of 60 to the house.
It is not like I am in a hurry or need to access the Internet in the evening. Cruising knitting blogs or similiar sites is optional, right? So why would I care that the phone started working again this morning but the DSL quit? And Telekom will not be able to come until Thursday. Of course, I have not a clue as to how we are going to manage that, given that some of us (not Telekom) seem to work for a living.
Now, given a chance to stay home and wait for the post, in case the Schatz Kiste comes my way in the next couple of days – why that would be of far more interest that to wait on someone who once again will tell us they have no clue as to why the DSL does not work. Oh – the Treasure Chest? A round robin of wool treasures, where each sucessive Pirat adds to the packet before removing anything, then sends it on to the next
victim participant on the list. Not leftovers, no, this is for treasure.
Ok, this way of knitting is almost as fiddly as the original, since I wanted the colours on the foot to match the original. After completing the leg, I used the cherry for a standard German heel. Then it became fun (not). Knitting all the way around twice with the moss, followed by the instep over with the cherry, backwards around the foot with the moss, interlock the two yarns then backwards with the cherry while the moss returns around the heel. It means that every fourth round is a real pain. I also noticed that I have stripes in the top; something that was not really evident in the sock, but shows clearly in the picture. Only 1/2 a foot and the toe to go.
Mai in den Tanz
Off to finish up two documents for work, and not from the comfort of my own chair.
