Spent much of the day cleaning and scrubbing. Making me tired and sore and without much progress to report. Luckily, I have yet to post the info on the finished baudelaires:
- Yarn: Knit/Purl’s Shibui Sock in “Orchid”
- Needles: 2 22″ Addi Turbos, 2.5 mm/ US 1
- Gauge: 8 sts/ inch in stockinette
- Size: 7.5″ foot circumference
- Pattern: Baudelaire by Cookie A.
- Recipient: ME! (little happy dance)
- Date started: July 24, 2007
- Date finished: August 9, 2007
And, umm, moving on. Nearly done with the second Slighty Twisted sock. I’ve promised the pattern to a couple of knitters at Mabel’s, so I’m kinda pushing ahead on it more exclusively. For my diligence, I got a whopping headache in the middle of the heel-flap.
I wonder if there’s a better way to sit or to hold my knitting? Any suggestions? When my neck used to get really bad (not to that point yet), I’d drop-spindle – so I’d be looking up and straining the muscles in the opposite direction. It actually works, I swear. But since I’m trying to get these socks done by next Tuesday… hmph.
(I really want to use my spinning wheel now.)
I did promise Opus a skein of handspun yarn. As a ‘thank you’ for these beauties:
See? I managed to take a better picture and everything.
Other news? I have officially decreed that there are TOO MANY lace patterns in the world. Yes, you
heard read me correctly. I’ve been working on a new design for a pair of socks using my “Smooshy” yarn, and I’m completely overrun with too many pretty lace patterns.
And, oooh, the yarn and needles I ordered from Knit Picks arrived for the Mystery socks I’m designing for the SKA in January. The needles, in the meantime, could effectively be used on, oh, a pair of Embossed Leaves socks. I mean, we wouldn’t want them to get rusty or lonely in the duration, would we?
No, of course not. There’s nothing more disheartening than a set of depressed DPNs.
