I tried Cookie’s short rows tutorial. And, then, I tried Cookie’s short rows tutorial. I tried 5 more times before declaring defeat. I’m overanalyzing or overreading or something! It sure isn’t the tutorial. It’s me. So, since I was completely defeated (for the time being), I just started a cuff down sock. It’s Nancy Bush’s Wishbone Sock from the March/April Piecework. This is a very very pretty sock, but once again, the lace is carried down the foot and I have issues with lace on my feet, so I’ll just do my cuff and then plain stockinette down the foot. It’s an enjoyable knit.
I also did my 10 Minutes a Day for about 20 minutes yesterday. I had an epiphany. I don’t think I have more than 2 or 3 oz. of the fiber. I haven’t been spinning it super thin, so I guess it will be a small amount of handspun for accent in another project. That’s ok. I am a process knitter and, most definitely, a process spinner.
Miss PurplePi is languishing in the knitting bag. Until we get moderating temperatures, she’s staying there. Sticky wool on my lap? No, thank you.
I return to the working world today. Glad for the job. Could use some more time off. And, what else is new?
My soundtrack today? The Spencer Davis Group with little known singer, Stevie Winwood. Gimme Some Lovin’. I have loved this song since the first time I heard it. The video is cheesy and they are most definitely lip-synching, but I absolutely adore this song and it makes me happy. You can’t ask for anything more from music, can you?
BTW, I will try the toe up short tow method from Cookie’s tutorial. I’m certain it’s my frame of mind right now. Things are a bit worrisome. Not horrible, just worrisome. We all go through these things. Not to worry. I’ll work it out. You have a good one! It’s Wednesday! Yay!!!!!!
