Doozer · Knitting

As Promised…

…some knitting content. Yes, in spite of being completely preoccupied with NaNoWriMo, I have gotten some actual knitting done.

First, the Charade socks I’ve been working on.

I was doing them in the traditional manner–one sock, cuff down–and got all the way to the toe shaping, which I proceeded to f*ck up royally. Since I had also screwed up made a teensy mistake at the top of the gusset, I decided to frog back to the gusset rather that just frog the toe. And then I said, screw this, I’m going to knit these 2-at-a-time-toe-up style. So here we are–heel turned and heading up the leg toward the cuff.

Unfortunately I didn’t have any catnip, so the impact of this toy wasn’t as great, but hell, it’s better than a poke in the eye nothing. Today, a trip to the pet store…
