Can it be done?
eight make that seven days to knit one sock. I have two separate medical-related appointments to accompany my mum on, which knocks out half a day each for recovery time. I also have to start thinking about packing for my holiday. Plus I’m also doing some last-minute sewing for my trip. So, here’s the question: Can I do it?
Oh, yeah. I finished the first sock. Did I mention that?
Unblocked and unworn and therefore looking like crap.
The second sock – using the cable needle as the waste yarn for the provisional cast on.
I’ll have all cast off/pattern/needle details once I’ve finished, so don’t ask at the moment!
I’m sorry about not responding to comments like I normally do. I’m now on the computer for about an hour a day because I just can’t justify the time.
Talking of which, I’m going to become a MacBook baby! I’ve been needing a replacement for the 4 kilograms of wasted space that is my current laptop and, having done research, I’ve decided to go over to “The White Side”… My brother says he’s going to disown me – hehe!
Any advice from Mac users will be greatly appreciated. I use mostly freeware/open source software at the moment, so I don’t anticipate any problems with moving over.
I was bored and so I decided to do a little test square in the Opal Rodeo Cotton yarn shown last time:
Messin’ around with yarn.
I went through all my stitch directories and couldn’t find anything that was simple, would bring out the best in the yarn and not disappear in the stripes and ragg colouring. I failed. I then remembered that someone had done the hard work for me. Thanks Rob!
Oh, and in response to comments from the last post – I wish I were going to Jamaica. For the World Cup final. Or semi-final. Or any cricket match. I am instead going to what is possibly the anti-Jamaica – the Highlands of Scotland. Och Ai! I’m fifth-generation Scottish, so I’m aloud to do that
Not that I’m obsessed with the cricket, but this is my desktop wallpaper. Come on Monty!
Right, I’m off to paint a bath panel (that’s not a euphemism, by the way) .
