Several of you have asked me that since I now seem to be doing all my toe-up socks with a gusset, do I prefer that to the short-row heel?
I dunno. Maybe.
I just got sick of the short-row heel after doing it exclusively for so long. Change is good.
Speaking of the gusset heel, I am mid-heel on my second Pagoda Lace sock.
I didn’t go to work today so I had some extra time to work on it. I had a doctor’s appointment today — here’s how long I had to wait at the doctor’s office:
The photo’s a bit blurry — sorry about that.
The “How Many Socks” Contest
I have put together the spreadsheet with all the guess in my “how many socks will Wendy knit during the Summer of Socks” contest. Thanks to the majority of you who followed the instructions and put just the number in the subject line, it was fairly easy to export all the emails into a spreadsheet and sort by the subject field.
There was a total of 783 entries. The lowest guess was 6 pairs. The highest guess was 218 pairs. (The number “42” was well-represented, by the way.)
My best guess is that I will knit somewhere between 6 and 218 pairs of socks. You heard it here first, folks.
That was quite a dramatic pic of Lucy yesterday, huh? She looked so alarmed at the thought of me not being online. How did I get such a photo?
I pointed the camera at her and said “Give me surprise, baby! Give me shock! Come on, baby, work it!”
Nah. Actually there is some maintenance work being done on our condo balconies and periodically guys on scaffolding appear outside the window. Lucy is staring at them.
Like in this photo.
