Hey, look Ma, it's a sock!!
I finally finished the damn thing during class last week. It's the best fitting sock I've ever made, all but for the ribbed cuff. Apparently my calves are just a bit too shapely for the ribbed cuffs. I'm going to rip out the ribbing and just have a basic rolled edge. And if I'm lucky, I'll make a matching sock to go with it. In the meantime, I made a gauge swatch with some Lorna's Laces "Watercolor" for yet another sock. Notice I didn't say "pair of socks". I have a problem.
This swatch is done on US #2's. Turns out that I'm going to have to go back to the #0's. sigh. Just not tight enough to suit me. But I do like the colors - bright, with a hint of autumn.
In baby news, the boys are gaining steadily (wonder where they get that from?) and doing well. Here is the proof:
Daniel, at 6 lbs.
Luke, at 5 lbs.
