so after posting a picture everyday of my sock progress I suddenly go quiet. what happened did I sink in to the bermuda triangle where the second sock disappear.? or maybe I sunk into a deep sock induced coma.
nope nothing so dramatic – the second sock is about 12 rows from being cast off. but close doesn’t count – but another half hour of heel knitting and my day & nights will be done. I took a short detour and knit up some samples for a day and then returned to my socks last night while watching tv. I need to take a few notes while I knit the heel of the second sock so I can finish writing out the directions to share with the Wens. knit group and also Linda. this is what my notes looked like the morning before I decided to work on translating my knit short hand. well actually the sketch, some numbers and a rough graph. if I leave my notes too long sometimes they don’t make sense even to me. Today I am hoping to cast on a second size and try out the numbers.so I typed up instructions and have the graphs finished…… unfortunately this is the point where I need technical assistance and the tech editor is off having a good time in NY while I am here in this gray dismal dreary meltdown. the driveway and the road have 1/2″ of inch that you can’t walk on but the lake has about a 1/2″ of water and slush on it that the dog was leary of walking on. so it will be a good day to be inside and knit and maybe even spin a yarn or two.look the Mr. is leaving a wake behind him(that is a summer thing – when you are close to shore or in a bay it is illegal to motor fast enough to leave a wake behind you. so it made me giggle to see a wake in Mr. Tickler’s boot prints. you can just make out Meva by the seawall – she didn’t want to walk on the wet ice- maybe she was afraid of falling through)
