Will it ever end?
The rain, I mean, not the knitting. I need to get going on these socks. It was fine to knit leisurely on my first Sockapaloooza pair because I planned for it. But now I have a Pal who is patiently waiting to get these socks. It isn't fair to ask my Pal to keep waiting forever.
Therefore, I set some daily goals for these past few days of knitting knitting. Pomatomus's cuff consists of three chart repeats. Therefore, the first goal was one cuff repeat a day.
Of course it isn't very difficult when I'm working with such wonderful yarn. I have been very fortunate with yarn selections for this swap. Just a reminder: I'm using Lucy's hand-dyed sock yarn from Mind's Eye Yarns in Cambridge. Do I need to remind you that she has an Etsy shop?
Okay, so I didn't exactly make repeat three on day three. Will a half repeat suffice? It'll have to. Somewhere along the way I made a mistake on one row and it threw everything off. I had an extra stitch in one group. Despite frogging and close examination I could not identify the spot where things went wrong. Eventually I decided that a well placed K3Tog, TBL would fix things and it did.
It's frustrating when I can't find my mistakes, but that probably means my Sockpal won't be able to spot it either.
