So I got up 2 hours later than planned. Then I thought, “oh, coffee!” and “look: it’s teh intarweb!” and here we are, still sipping coffee and sitting on the couch. The cat’s mad at me because I’m sitting in her place, but I should be at the library anyway, so it doesn’t really count. But the library kind of smells like feet and armpits, which doesn’t matter because the principle is the same: I should be at my desk with the computer in work position. Yet instead of showering and acting like a responsible adult, I thought I’d read some blogs and take pictures of my knitting. Maybe check out ravelry, too, because you never know what kind of late-breaking knitting news might have happened in the night. Or what awesome patterns need to be knit. right. now.
I just wish we didn’t go through this every morning.
Here’s some madder ribbed progress:
keep moving: nothing to see here, just a little boring sock progress
After working on the Gentleman’s Shooting Stockings — in fluted pattern over 70+ stitches — these are working up so quickly. I just look at them and it seems they grow a little bit. But easy ribbing over 60 stitches will produce those kind of results. Especially on 3.00 mm needles. I thought about starting over on needles a bit closer to the recommended 2.25 mm size, but these are fitting pretty well, so why bother? For my next sock project I think I’ll try the tiny needles, even if I have to cast on more stitches to get a sock that fits. Blast you, too-tight knitting!
Before they’re bundled up for the mail, here’s the GSS in all of their blocked glory:
I hope they fit. The gauge is pretty loose and I think they might stretch like a mofo. But at least they’re pretty!
