Thank you all so very, very much for your wonderful support. After such a needed break, coming home to hubby and Jacob has been incredibly helpful, and I’m feeling lots better than I was a week ago. Of course, the Sox doing so well in the world series and all of that yarn don’t hurt, either.
My excitement for my knitting returned today. I was looking at the Waterlily top on my dressform this morning, and realizing that I can now take some proper FO shoots (the boob fairy had brought her unwelcome bounty by the time I finished it, and thankfully she has now taken it away again). So that’ll be happening some time soon. I finished my swatch for the Tangled Yoke cables, as well. It looks good, so now on to the 300+ stitches/row cabley goodness.
Oh, and I’ve been working on a sock.
It’s Eleanora, by Miriam Felton, and I just wasn’t satisfied with the slip-stitch heel called for in the pattern. I like the heel pictured above better, but it’s going to be ripped out again because of the mistake on the left side pictured. And since I’m going to rip it out, I’m wondering: Should I make the widening of the double moss stitch more gradual? Like, instead of shifting 2 stitches every row, do them every other row, maybe? Thoughts? Critiques? Is the sock totally and completely hideous and I’m just not seeing it? (It’s for someone else, so I’m going through much more self-doubt than usual with this project. Damn perfectionism.)
I’m really hoping to finish both the sock and the sweater by the end of October, and head into November with a totally clean slate. Think I can do it?
