A bit of progress on just about everything

Have you ever gotten to the point where you just have a couple rows to go before casting off, then see the big honking mistake you made right from the very beginning? Well, that's what happened to me Sunday night. I was almost done with the right front for Tailored Scallops when I realized I hadn't done the edge stitches for the center front in garter stitch. Ugggggg the whole dang thing had to be frogged.

My original plan was to finish up those last couple of rows, then spend the rest of the evening sock knitting. Since I sincerely hate leaving something frogged, I wound up frantically knitting away on Tailored Scallops instead. I managed to finish the piece off and even got to do a few rounds on Paul's latest pair of socks before going to bed.

Just a couple more repeats of the cable pattern then some ribbing and the first of Paul's Cable Rib socks will be done. Only 11 more socks to go to catch up where I should be for the 52 Pair Plungs LOL.

Last night I decided to cast on yet another pair of socks. I guess in my feable brain there is the thought that if I see them all started, I will knit frantically to finish them all. Actually that just might work if I see a pair that I really want to cast on. Since all my dpns are currently being used, I'd have to finish something in order to start another pair. Below is the beginning of my Solstice Slip socks from BMFA's Rockin' Sock Club. I love the colors in this yarn, and the pattern is really pretty when it isn't all bunched up on teeny tiny dpns.

Also cast on last week are the Lacy Knee Highs from Interweave Knits Winter 2004 issue. I found the required yarn on sale a few months back and finally got around to starting the socks. These will be great come fall.

Paul's other pair of socks are making some progress too. I might decide to finish this one off after the first Cable Rib sock is done instead of casting on the second right away.

And last on the needles, sockwise, is the Crosshatch Lace socks from More Sensational Socks. I really like this pattern, and just might decide to make another pair using it.


  1. Hey, your tailored scallops thing looks a lot like my handspun scarf!

  2. You make my head spin!

  3. I'm trying to decide when you have time to sleep. You continue to amaze me with your beautiful work.
