Well, this mess doesn’t look like much, does it? This is try 1, of 3 tries, at beginning a new pair of toe-up socks using a beginning method new to me. Have you heard of Very Pink Knits? Staci is a knitting teacher who writes patterns and shares techniques through YouTube videos. Anyway, I tried remembering the video directions and had problems. So then I tried just doing my own cast-on, which worked but I felt that I had failed my “test” so I pulled it out again, watched the video again and then got started over. I know have the toes almost done but it is time to watch the third video about how to finish up the short rowing on the toe. Then I will have the easy time doing the foot.
And here is the new yard I got for my next sweater. I am going to repeat the last sweater, this time with a yarn that matches the pattern. I know that it will be easy and just the right thing to work on while Mother and I are visiting later this month.
I did get an owl completed except for her eyes. I can’t seem to find the fabric I’ve used for the pupils so for the time being I am pretending that she just had her eyes dilated.
I did buy a little more fabric this week: flannel for receiving blankets. This pair I just love so I bought enough for at least 2 blankets.
I didn’t get as much done this week as I had hoped but I have started feeling better. Today I tottered around without the cane (it felt a little lonesome all alone in the corner). But I was glad to have it close at hand because a couple of times I thought I was going to need it. My daughter, the nurse, said she thought it may be bursitis although I thought that only happened in the shoulder.
We have no plans for this weekend so I am hoping that I will have a lot of sewing/knitting time. And it would be all right, to to have a little antiquing time, not that we need more stuff.
Have a great weekend and see you again on Monday.
