I did not knit on Kerry at all last night. Instead, I finished the first of the Spanish Moss socks:
Yes, my foot is up on the radiator at work. I’m so glad no one walked in my office while I was taking these photos. Kinda hard to explain to a non-knitter, you know?
I decided to try a picot edge for the top of these socks. I love it. The sock stays up and fits very nicely. What I did — when the sock was long enough for my liking, I worked k2tog, yo around, then worked 6 rounds (1/2 inch) plain to make the facing. I used the Stretchy Sewn Bind-off, then carefully sewed the facing to the inside of the sock.
As easy as pie.
So. No knitting on Kerry tonight, either. Tonight was Mason-Dixon Knitting!
But I’ll talk about that tomorrow, otherwise I’ll be up past my bedtime tonight. And we don’t want that.
Yesterday’s Booze Photo
A couple of you commented that the bottles in the photo looked pretty full.
Well, I suppose I should tell you that the “everyday” booze lives on the kitchen counter. You know. For easy access.
Do you colour coordinate what you drink with what you’re knitting?
Hey, what a great idea! Must look into that . . .
Stacy commented that she’d love to see my Sugar ‘n Cream sweater. Yeah, so would I. I wonder what happened to it?
Kelly in New Mexico asked:
How long have you knitted straight without stopping except for a break?
Good question — I haven’t really thought about it. Maybe 2 or 3 hours?
The King of All Remote Controls has a list of his favorite movies on his blog and queries “What are your favorite movies?”
I set myself a limit of 10. Subject to change at my whim, here is my shortlist list of movies I can watch over and over:
This Happy Breed
Murder on Monday (sometimes called Home at Seven in the U.S.)
Dial “M” for Murder
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
