I know, I missed 3 days, but I went 14 before the lapse and that’s pretty good for me. Life has been life, Hubby had a b’day, MIL was back in the hospital (she is in a rehab center now, again), my parents got back from a road trip across country, and we finally bought a new dishwasher. See, life.
On the knitting front I am almost done with the vest, ribbing on one armhole left to go. Saturday I spent 2 hours knitting the ribbing on the other armhole, I cannot count to two apparently and had to keep tinking back the k2p2 ribbing. Did I mention that the stitches had already been picked up, all I had to do was knit the ribbing, six rows, pathetic.
Tonight I cast-on some socks for Bug. The yarn was purchased from Emma at DragonFibers, and the colorway is called Eight Nights. After casting on and knitting a couple of inches it seemed that the sock was too big. Since Bug was asleep I couldn’t check, or could I? Now if I were a bad mother I would go into her room with a measuring tape and measure her long skinny feet while she slept, with the possibility of waking her from a sound sleep. Yeah, okay, I’m a bad mother. And, yes, I do need to rip out the sock and cast on fewer stitches, oh well.
