I was taking a few pictures of my current knitting projects. When I went to download the photos, I found this picture as well.
David is not here, so I asked Davey what was going on here. Apparently he was making a spider with those wiki sticks. Those are such fun. Not any spider either. This is the itsy bitsy spider. And that’s all he had to say about that.
I have ordered a book which has a pattern that should work for David’s sweater. We are going to then have a serious discussion about color choices. David only wears blue or gray. That might be a slight exaggeration, but if you look through his closet that’s about all you see. So I am having big doubts about this light gray almost off-white hue for the background.
I am not knitting much. Here’s what I have done on my next Joy of Sox sock. I have done 1 ten round repeat. At this rate, it’s going to be awhile. It’s just a sock that needs my concentration, and in the evenings I have trouble locating my concentration.
This pattern is so neat though. I thought I was going to be making bobbles, but this is different. You increase 1 stitch to 5 stitches and then you knit those 5 stitches as you do the next 2 rows. Then you do the slip slip pass over slipped stitch thing and take it back to 1. Really neat. I hadn’t done that before.
I’ve mostly just been working on David’s socks in the evenings lately as they are easy to knit. I am in straight stockinette stitch now to the end of the sock. It’s a gray sock and not incredibly exciting. I am hoping they will fit David.
That’s about it. I have another stack of papers staring at me and waiting to be graded. Tomorrow I will take them on!
