My finger is better; I decided to work through the weirdness of it since it didn’t hurt. Finished up the footies, including picking up the cast-on stitches and knitting on 4 more rows before casting off again. But I caught myself after having added 2 sets to one footie and none to the other. Heh!
No new photo of that because it looks pretty much the same. But I do have one of a new set I just started:
It is 45% Cotton/40% Superwash Wool/15% Nylon Sockotta – The Plymouth Italian Collection. Sounds kind of sexy, doesn’t it? I wonder who gets the job of naming these collections. They must have an interesting imagination. Purple and black with a bit of burgundy seems more like lavender licorice to me.
I am doing 1" of 2×2 ribbing, and then baby cable. I don’t know whether I will continue the "cable" down into the foot.
It is knitting up nice, but it sure was tangly when I was knitting from the yarn vomit (you know, the innards mess that comes out when you are trying to find the center).
The weekend was bits of wonderful and not-so-wonderful mixed together. WT, Chaachi and I went to see the X-Men movie, and really enjoyed it. Especially since we banded together with a bunch of our friends and their children. Then it was back to the house to pick up our dogboy Spencer, then to a very late dinner while Spencer waited in the car. Then off to Mary’s house until way too late. Sunday brought D&D gaming and more fun with friends. Oh, and knitting happened too – but not a lot. I have been getting back into reading again. Just a few nice novels – nothing too deep.
