I sort of finished the baby sock yesterday. (I couldn’t wait until I was absolutely alone like all the books said I should be before I grafted for the first time….instead I just
yelled at the kids told the children I could not be interrupted for a few minutes.) Here it is being modeled by “Big Tom,” who looks like he couldn’t be happier. The sock is big for him (I don’t think it’s the sock’s fault), and the darning yarn and needle are still attached, and the ends aren’t woven in yet. (They still aren’t.) But I thought you’d like to see it just the same.
Oh yeah, since it’s in Hogwarts Sock Swap colors and I don’t want to give away who I’m knitting for, I did some basic photo editing. 🙂
I did pick up the Hogwarts beanie and get the stitch markers put in place. But most of my time last night was spent planning the quilt top I’m working on. Math n stuff. Ick. Not all of the T-shirt panels I’m using are the same width, so I will need to put in some “spacer” panels among the sashing strips, to even everything out. The client is calling, thank goodness for caller ID so I can dodge her calls until the top is done. I hate that I’m acting this way. If anyone were here to provide free babysitting, laundry, and dishwashing services I’m sure I could get more sewing done.
I also wrote out checks to pay bills. Where are the rest of the stamps, and how long are they still good before the rates are raised again?
And. Dudes. It’s Yarn Harlot Day on Knitty Gritty. My tape is selected and I’m itching to press record at 1pm Central Time. I’m willing to circulate the resulting VHS, so if you would like to help send it around to knitters who can’t get the show, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you via e-mail. And for those of you who will be watching the show, should we be knitting a Harlot pattern, or maybe just a sock, at the time? Just a thought.
