… knit stoned. Legally, prescribed, stoned, I hasten to add!
Seriously, painkillers plus something to stop my muscle spasms makes for some very interesting knitting!
So, despite accidentally taking those pills together (which I’ve done before, and forgot why I’m not supposed to!) I’ve managed to make progress!
I’m this close to finishing. See?
There is just some seaming to do and then the wait for non-rain-weather. Wish me luck!
Turing and the Apple:
I’m much happier with v2 of the Summer of Socks design. Why? Because I actually knit the correct number of rows in the heel flap (32 instead of the first time of 22). Huh! Surprisingly, it fits so much better!
I originally went with a round toe for the sock, but in order to make the numbers work for all sizes (and because it fits my toe better) I’m going a different way for the new version.
Still slogging on Clue 3 of the Mystery Stole.
The Cotton Angora top (Jessica) is on holiday until I finish Wren.
The Boudica socks have taken a well-earned chariot vacation until I’ve settled on the Turing design.
Finally, a heads up:
I’m going to need I’d like a test knitter for the Turing sock. I should have a workable pattern (in three sizes) by next week, but I’ll knit one size from my own instructions. You’d have to be able to knit at least one sock by the end of August. I’m looking for someone with tiny feet (about 6-7″ circumference) and larger feet (about 9″ circumference).
EDIT: I made a mistake with the sizes. The larger size would be more like a 10″/25.5 cm fit and the smaller 7-8″/18-20 cm. Any takers for the smaller size at all?
You wouldn’t be able to blog about it until after the pattern is released (late September at the earliest).
You: a regular reader and commenter, speady sock knitter with a grammar-obsession.
Me: Needy and grateful. 🙂
