Here I am. Hope you’re all well. My computer died, I went skiing for the first time, had a mini graduate school meltdown. You know, just the usual.
Despite skiing — for a couple of days anyway, until my arthritic hip started acting up — I even managed to finish up a sock. Not just any sock, either, but a Gentleman’s Shooting Stocking from Knitting Vintage Socks.
The Mega Boots Stretch has caused some gauge issues, as has my chubby sock-knitting needles (3.25 mm), but I hope they’ll fit my dad. Despite the differences in yarn and needles, my gauge is only about a stitch off the given. Enough to feed my optimism.
I’ve got an FO or two to show off, but first I need to work out some new computer picture uploading bugs.
