However, after seeing my stricken look, she quickly tried for the positive ...
"At least you'll get lots of knitting done!"
As you know from my last long-ago post, we are pretty darn busy. Once I get home, there's always lots of home chores which I usually ignore in favor of Wine and Couch.
Okay, it's not really all that bad, but I am decidedly NOT happily clicking through row after row. I am , however, making some progress.
I did finish a second panel of Mark's UT Afghan and sewed the two together:
It's nice and squishy with the cabling on the orange panel and the blackberry stitch on the white but I find that I'm not too comfortable with the cheap ... I mean, inexpensive, tougher-than-iron, acrylic. Maybe I'm getting somewhat fiber snobbish? HAH! Wouldn't the non-vegan knitters have a great hoot at that!
I also finally finished the first of the "Ribbed Fixation Socks" that I copied after Vegan Knitting (and then some) many months ago.
I really like the stretchy fit and the length of the leg, and most of all, that nice thick slip stitch heel.
I like it so much so that I might even eventually finish the second sock! (which I did start last night, thank you very much).
In a weird coincidence, just now Beau dug out a long-forgotten toy -- a teensy mouse knit during the last unfinished sock project. I deemed that sock pretty but not comfortable and banished it off to the great race of single socks.
You don't think my boy was making a wise-assed comment, do you?
