Yesterday I went to the Stitch London blog to see if there was any news about or sightings of my mini-me. I was happy to see that they had photographs posted of the museum display! There were 259 Stitched Selves submitted. It took me awhile, but I found my mini Christina. Here’s a photo of the entire display:
Here is one more focusing in more on my little stitched self:
Thanks David for putting in the helpful circles and arrows for me! Just think, a little stitched self from Arkansas all the way over in London. So fun. I still wish they could send her back to me someday.
And then: The Two to Tango socks are done! I blocked them to my feet and I am pretty happy with them. David helped me get some pictures. Doing the contortionist thing trying to photograph my own feet was kind of painful.
I like this picture even better:
and this one:
So now it is on to Sock Number 3 in The Joy of Sox : Takeout for Two. I will post a photo of my progress tomorrow. I have the foot done (that’s easy to say when you don’t have to knit a toe OR a heel!), and I am working on the ankle. I am knitting with sportweight yarn so it feels like it is knitting up really fast.
Happy Tuesday! Davey and I are going to go “stroll”!
Frazzled hot sweaty Arkansas Christina is all set to go to London. I know this is a little weird, but I couldn’t stand to seal her up in a plastic bag for protection. I had to leave it open at the top which kind of defeats the purpose of protection. I didn’t much like taping her in the envelope either. Maybe quite a bit weird. But Davey and I are getting ready to take her to the post office.
I am through with the leg of my Roll in the Hay Sock and am starting the heel flap! I made it through the transition row! There was some errata for that row as well that I found on ravelry. I was able to figure out it though without too much trouble.
I will take pictures of the heel process. I love making the heel of a sock. There are several ways to do it, but I only know one. (Although, as I work my way through this book, I have a feeling I will learn others.) I do a standard heel, and it is just such fun.
Ok, time to go say bon voyage to mini-me. Oh, I started re-reading A Walk in the Woods last night by Bill Bryson. I read it probably 10 years ago. I made the mistake of starting it right before I went to sleep. David was already asleep. Bill Bryson makes me laugh so much. I was trying to not wake David up, so laughter tears were just rolling. He is magical in his humorous writing. I love him. I guess I am stating the obvious when I say that I highly recommend this book. As an added bonus, I am learning a lot about the Appalachian Trail.
Davey is feeling totally recovered an is back to his normal energetic self. Yay for that.
