So much to catch up on and hardly a thing to show, other than these socks for my little Cashew. I didn't even finish them while on vacay over Memorial Day Weekend. No, my bad luck followed me to the Catskills. While knitting in the car I realized that I had made a huge error in these tiny socks. I never finished the gusset decreases in one sock and had already knit many rows in plain stockinette. Ripping back is my theme, and one I don't particularly want. So going back to my original plan for ignorant bliss (which you all supported with gusto) I put the socks down and knit this instead.
Upon returning from a lovely vacation in which there were no cell phone towers and a brand new digital camera with no battery, I snapped out of ignorant bliss and got back to work on these socks for Cashew. I improvised my own pattern with Trekking XXL (colorway?) using a 3x1 rib, a few decreases at the ankle and a standard heel flap and toe. I made them a tad big so she can wear them in the fall. She has enjoyed trying them on but getting a modeled shot proved to be tricky.
Watching her toddler two step around the apartment is a riot. My little Cashew is walking!
And because I can't resist a meme for which I have been tagged:
1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
June 1998 - I was dodging mean squirrels and teaching dance at Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan.
2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Update SnK on WWKIPD info.
Reorganize the laundry closet.
Take care of a feverish Hubby. Today he truly puts the hot in "Hotty".
3) Snacks I enjoy: Yogurt parfait, Veggie Booty, endive with goat cheese, walnut and honey. Delish.
4)Things I would do if I were a billionaire: Buy a bigger apartment, a country house in a different country, take more vacations, open a fiber arts studio and offer more support to my favorite charities.
5) Places I have lived: Michigan and New York.
Chemgrrl, Wannabe, Allison, Hila, MLE...your turn. Go!
