I’m still a die-hard cuff-down sock knitter, but I have been wanting to expand my knitting repertoire (esp. in relation to socks) for some time now. So, at 2 am last night, I challenged myself to write a toe-up pattern and actually knit it for my Sockdown: August project (raverlry thing).
Last night, as I was crawling into bed, a sudden wave of inspiration hit me (which is why I spent then next hour or two scribbling in my knitting journal and now have one less eraser). By 3 am I had a design for the two skeins of Cotton Comfort I’d bought. Along with several other patterns that aren’t important at the moment. Anyway…
Don’t ask me why, since I surely don’t know, but these socks are named Geraldine:
At the moment I have almost 6″ of the first sock done, which was achieved while watching a series of truly terrible movies (Mom and Dad Save Earth and Ghost Rider to name a two).
Other progress to report? All the patterns on the blog have been converted to PDF, as has the Socktoberfest tutorial (albeit badly). Also, the heel flap is finished and the gussets started on the second Slightly Twisted sock. I even printed a chart this afternoon for Geraldine’s instep, using this cool chart maker. I’m planning on making a chart for the heel next.
And that’s about everything. Time to chart that heel, methinks.
