I am loving these socks – just need a few more conferences……

I got up this morning and did my 15 minutes of spinning despite a small disability due to almost cutting the tip of my index finger off yesterday (maybe a little dramatic but some glue or a stitch may have been a good idea, I’ve stuck it down with tape and it’s stopped oozing and throbbing unless I knock it). It felt great (not the finger, the spinning, sticking to the plan etc), done by 7am, let’s see if I can keep it up. I ended up doing more than 15 minutes though as today is Sock Sunday and I don’t like the socks I’m working on. Despite only having 20 rounds of pattern to go, they are a trial. I took them to the skate park but didn’t get them out, I took them to an afternoon kids party and left them in the car, now I am off the read good night stories and then, maybe then, tackle the last little bit. As incentive I dug out the next pattern so hopefully I’ll have something to show next Sunday!

I have finished a pair of socks! These guys have been finished for a little while and they’ve been posted & received. Disappointingly they are too big for J but she likes them anyway – I’ll actually measure her foot next weekend for a new pair because I don’t think these will give her the right feel for hand knit socks.
The yarn was from Charli’s sock club last year, it’s soft, glossy & was lovely to knit but I started way back in April which makes them a very long knit. In the past few months I have been working pretty much full-time and going some work slightly outside my scope of practice which made it really challenging but really rewarding. After the last school holidays life slowed down a tiny bit for a few weeks and I picked up the knitting again. It’s feels so great.
Yarn – Ixchel Bunny Sock Club
Needles – 2 mm DPN
Gauge – 8 sts/inch (I think)
Timing: Sunday 13 April 2014 – 29 July 2014
Yards – I had a fair bit left over – maybe enough for booties?
Modifications – Nil.

I have taken a tip from my daughter who, after a very nervous first riding lesson, got back on the horse for a second week and firmly planted the seed of desire to become a proficient horsewoman.
No, I didn’t get on a horse but I did finish the first Socks on a Plane sock after a very nasty accident with my DPN going about 1cm into my palm. I have now begun the next one…
