The foot is 68 stitches around. After I completed the heel, I increased to a total of 80 stitches, and am working a 4 by 4 rib for the leg. This should make for a nice squishy sock. Of course, it takes me much longer to knit 4 by 4 rib than it does stockinette, but I’m in no hurry.
Oh, and the All Seasons Cotton sweater is coming along.
But not much knitting will go on tonight, for Lucy and I will be busy tidyng up for a special guest who is coming over tomorrow night.
I’ve asked Lucy if she’ll dust with her tail if I spray it with Lemon Pledge. She said no. Sheesh.
