How’s that for a catchy “come read me” title? It’s not a major confession. It involves my first Two To Tango sock and it may partially explain the fit problems. As I am knitting the heel flap on my second sock, well- I realized that it was getting really long compared to what I remembered about the first one. I looked at the first one: Heel Flap = 1/2 of Total Length Needed. (Putting it into a semi-mathematical equation makes me feel a little less dumb about it.) Where was I when I was knitting that? Good grief. That poor first sock seems to be riddled with mistakes. Fortunately to look at it – you’d think it was fine. I will re-evaluate when I finish the second one – I think I should rip back and reknit. I say I am about the process, but that’s quite a rip out! Just 16 rows short of a full heel flap. Dumb dumb dumb.
Sock 2 is progressing well though:
I am working on the foot of the Take-out sock too. I needed some mindless knitting when we went to Hot Springs yesterday. I haven’t gotten too far yet.
Think we are going to go to the lake today and grill some hot dogs. I found a new recipe for slow cooked pulled pork and sweet slaw that I will make tomorrow. Maybe we will go watch some fireworks!
Tried to get a picture of Davey this morning. He’s playing with my measuring tape and watching some Saturday morning shows. I couldn’t fully get his attention – this is him saying “cheese” without actually looking at me:
