Red Ribs and Cables

These are my first pair of socks completed in about two months. I didn’t think I would be happy with a sock break, but it really helped! In fact, I’ve already started a new pair, this time for gift-giving later this year. Still in the works are the socks for my Hogwarts Sock Swap [...]

Three old ladies knit the socks of death

Today’s post title is courtesy of Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief. I thought this chapter heading was too cute not to use. (The book is first in a series about a boy’s modern-day adventures with the Olympian gods, demigods, creatures, and monsters. If you are familiar with Greek and Roman mythology, it’s easy to [...]

3 things

It’s so sad, shocking, and awful about the bridge collapse. Yes, I’m OK. Fortunately no one in my family was anywhere close. I used to live on the West Bank, right in this area; I can’t imagine how stressful it must be over there now. In case you missed the news, [...]

A Well-Executed Plan

Confession time. Remember how I mentioned in the previous post I hadn’t noticed my stripe count error in the maroon and gold socks until after I had taken a progress photo? To be precise, I didn’t notice the problem until after I had knit BOTH insteps and tried them on.

My first impulse was to [...]

Striped Setback

More stripy knitting continues. I’ve restarted the Mad Cows for the third time. As soon as I finished the insteps, I put them aside for a while. I really needed a break from them.

I’ve been on a maroon-and-gold kick lately.

At long last!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes last week. I’m mostly over my cold now. Strangely, it was mild (as in I didn’t need much medicine), but also was lingering and annoying. I was very glad to finally get a good night’s sleep!
