Concrete 1, Head 0In case any of y'all are wondering, smacking one's head onto a hard surface can result in some pain, a bit of a black eye, and, if you happen to be more than a little tipsy at the time, a trip to the emergency room to double check for signs of a concussion. Luckily, besides a bruised ego and the aforementioned black eye, I'm 100% fine.
So anyway, in MUCH better news, I finally managed to take pictures of my latest finished socks:
New Mexico Socks
Shield Your Eyes Socks
Random solid yellow sock yarn, and slightly variegated pink and orange from ebay seller lotusblossom.
Much fun to knit. Did I mention that I LOVE the stripes?
I had to make the socks smaller, but that was easily accomplished by reducing the knit sts to 5 instead of the 7 called for between the interesting stuff. I used 60 sts for the foot, and increased back to 7 for the ankles.
Also, (of course), these were knit toe-up with my standard short-row toes and heels on 2 US1 addi turbos.
In other happy news,
Here, Cricket demonstrates that you CAN have your grey mouse, and your red mouse too.
And finally - a Tribute to Spring in D.C.
