Crunch Time

July 2, 2009

Well, folks, my Sock Innovation class begins in one week and a few hours. Last I checked, there were five enthousiastic sock knitters signed up for the ride. I’ve got some socks to knit in the next week. I knew it would come down to this, so I’m not kicking myself too hard, but I have a lot of knitting to do because I am determined to have all fifteen of those socks on display at the beginning of class next Thursday.

It’s gotten to the point where I’m doubling up on patterns and working on two at a time for variety’s sake. Right now I’m past the heel turn on Bex, which is a very slow-moving pattern.
And I’m into the second and final repeat of the leg pattern on Eunice, which is moving along so much more quickly than I anticipated.

Luckily for my sock knitting, I’m not working a ton in the next week, so I should have a fair amount of knitting time available to me. Let’s just hope it’s enough!

As a follow up to last year’s adventure, let me provide some reassurance to all of you out there that know my Sweetie:
We picked up a helmet for him today. He hasn’t been allowed to ride his bike since the accident because he didn’t have a helmet, so he’s looking forward to doing a lot of riding now. But only if he wears the helmet!

    Good luck- I know you’ll do it!! And way to get Steve a helmet- he kind of definitely needed one…

    Having 15 socks to knit: good! Having 15 socks to knit under duress: bad!

    Helmet: good! Head injury: bad!
