Well, the naughty little sock is done and on a blocker.
Doesn’t it look innocent there? I can only hope that at this point it has calmed down into sedate adulthood. Sort of like me.
Here is the second sock of the pair.
So far it has been behaving itself as a good little sock should.
After breaking up the sock intervention on Thursday night, I counted the pairs of completed hand knit socks currently in my possession. I have 29 pairs. This means I must have given away a lot of hand knit socks, because last year alone I knit 29 pairs of socks.
Thanks, y’all, for weighing in on the reading while knitting discussion. I do actually have a couple of devices actually designed to hold a book open. But you know what? I like my stapler and tape dispenser solution better. It works for me.
Some of you mentioned listening to audio books while knitting. I’ve tried listening to audio books, but can’t get into the experience. I like reading much more than listening. I like to pause to reread and savor from time to time, and it’s much easier to do that when you are reading the old-fashioned way!
Speaking of books . . .
There were 1081 entries in the drawing to win a copy of The Friday Night Knitting Club. I used a random number generator to pick four winners. They are Michelle D., Kate L., Janice R., and Lori H. These four ladies have been emailed. Thank you to everyone who sent me an email. Lucy sends purrs and kisses to everyone who sent me greetings.
I had a productive weekend and got a lot done on Cromarty — see?
Hopefully I’ll be able to finish the front within the next week. Then it will be on to last sleeve.
Lucy got in some quality sleeping.
And she thought it might be nice to grace you with another profile shot.
