SO Glad It's Friday!
For the first time, I was able to sit in a 4 hour training session and knit - on my Big Sis's Fleece Artist sock. I was just at the point of starting the heel bed (is that what the part under the heel is called?) when the session started. I sat and listened to the part conference call-part webcast, checking out the Powerpoint photocopies periodically, and finished that, then turned the heel, picked up the gusset stitches, and proceeded to knit 4 repeats of the Feather & Fan pattern from Wendy that I like so much (this is my third pair of socks made by that pattern!)
Here is the gratuitous "in progress" shot - please note, that my sister's foot is longer than mine, hence the "excess" toe?
I'm so excited! I think it's very likely she'll get these socks for Christmas...(unlike This Gift that is still in hibernation...waiting for some free breathing space to rip out the edging).
Ok...On another (happy!) note, my Knitpicks order has shipped (two days ago). I won't get it any before Monday, now, as I had it shipped to the office (sob!), but that's okay. I guess. I was hoping to get the Options circulars to use on these same socks - but I'm managing with the Crystal Palace bamboo dpns.
There was a little mini-front that moved thru here yesterday (dropped the temps about 6 degrees). One would have thought it would be no problem, what's 6 degrees, after all? Hardly noticeable, right?
Wrong. I ended up in a wrist brace today b/c the tendonitis in the thumb/wrist was so uncomfortable. (sigh) Thankfully, that helped, and I'm feeling better tonight.
Someone else is feeling the weather...note that she is staying on the carpet?
Even my fur coat isn't quite enough, Mommie
