I was all excited to photograph my finished Roll in the Hay socks this morning. All that was left to do was to graft the toes. I did that and wove in my ends. I was looking at my sock and admiring how nicely I had woven in the ends, when I thought “hmmm”. My sock looked a little short. Sure enough, I’d left out an entire pattern repeat. 20 rows short. So I had to take out the toe. Undoing my nice kitchener stitch is not high on my list of favorite things to do, but I got it. I had a bit of a mess as seen below:
Here is the top of my sock. It lacks one repeat:
But I have order once again, and I am good to go to finish up this sock for real this time!
Davey woke up seriously volatile and grumpy this morning. Sometimes he is so not a morning person. He is so like me in that way. I’d prefer not to talk for an hour or so after I wake up. I had a nightshirt forever – finally had to throw it away – but it said it perfectly: “I don’t do mornings”. Davey is coming around though to his usual cheerful self. He was playing catch with David a little while ago. Davey preferred to head butt the ball each time though. I think we have a little soccer player in the making!
He’s now playing with Daddy, and I am going to get on the treadmill. Happy Friday!
