Annyeong haseyo ヾ(_ _。）. TGIF, TGIF. While I’m happy it’s Fri-yay, I’m feelin’ good. Bloglovin came through and did the work of claiming this blog for me – kamsa hamnida, Micah. And I finally got back on the workout horse today, walking a little over two miles and pumpin’ iron along with doing squats and crunches. My body is s-o-r-e; I’m going to need some IB soon. How about you? How you feelin’ today?
The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.
I can’t believe I have two feet into February. I look behind at January in the distance and wonder, where did time go? STITCHES West is the 22nd to the 25th. I didn’t plan on going this year but then Barrett Wool Co’s email delivered into my inbox and says they’re going to be vending in the marketplace! Well heck, of course I’m changing my mind!
However, I am (;´・`)> behind on my Flax! I have to get it done by the 23rd; that’s when I’m going down to maw every booth and to give Susan a hug + take a selfie with her too!
The last time you saw my sweater, I was almost done with the raglans. I’m done with them and have the correct number of stitches. (•́⌄•́๑)૭✧ Because my row/round gauge doesn’t match the pattern’s, it tells me I need to knit around and around with no increases and decreases until I reach nine inches.
And so Big Woods Flax and I will get some QT until I get it done. Cross your fingers for me, pls. This picture, BTW, really shows the true green of the Big Woods colorway.
So because I’ll be the fast and the furious with my Chiaogoo Interchangeables, I will flash the small progress I have on Harry right now as I don’t know if I’ll have a sock post for March:
A reminder of what the heel flap and turned heel look like.
One gusset has been picked up and knitted. Seventy-five percent of it was done Sunday during Super Bowl. You see how I went from knitting vertically down to outwards left. Twenty rounds complete the gusset from start to finish. I would decrease twice in one round and then knit straight in the other (10 of each). The reason why this happens is because when the stitches are picked up, there are way more stitches than the number I had started with (80 vs. 60). So I needed to decrease every other round to get back down to the original number of 60.
In the car one day while waiting for one of the daughters to get out of school, I started picking up the gusset of the second sock.
Okie doke. I need to start getting ready for pick up, making sure I pack Flax to pass the time in the car. I hope you have some interesting plans this weekend. A big kamsa hamnida to those of you who have transferred your reading to over here in my new space. I appreciate your great company. Oh BTW, for future 411, with the way widgets work for this WP theme, one can follow me by scrolling down all the way to the near end of this post. I need to add a Bloglovin button if I can. TTYS. Annyeong kaseyo.
