Ah, a little quiet time in the morning before the hordes wake up. Yes, the kid is hordes all by himself. The husband hides from the hordes too. I think he already left to deal with smog check stuff for the umpteenth time this renewal. Pictured – the sock of course, well-used mug gifted from my brother (hi brother of mine!), and reading (the most wonderful nursery ever, Annie’s Annuals in Richmond).
Closest to true color here. This is where I am as of right now, an inch or so away from starting the toe shaping.
A decent view of the pattern. Oh, how I love this pattern! I’m in the middle of a paradox. The pattern is so much fun to knit that I knit it a lot and quickly, which means I will finish it quickly and no longer be knitting. I should slow down so I have more enjoyment. But sometimes I seem to knit the way I read.
Of course I’m not knitting the sock strictly to pattern, as good as Nancy Bush’s pattern is. I’m trying out Meg Swansen’s Form-Fitted Arch from her book Knitting and I added the “loving swath/arch shaping” to the foot. Um, not exactly as written, but to fit my knitting.
