All behind

Those slippers knit up mighty fast. I took them to bed last night and by the time we put the light out I had just the one round left to go. I discussed with Mr L my love of the engineering side of knitting, I laid the toe out to be admired by the pair of us, I stretched it this way and that (so neat!), I found the hole… It’s a good job that these are so quick and easy to do – because I shall be re-knitting this one. Somehow, I have a dropped stitch at the toe end where the sole was picked up to knit the welt. For now, I knit on. I am so far on with it that I might as well get it cast off and check the size before starting another one. It does look fairly diminutive on the needles, it must be said. (Swatch! Who said Swatch?)

I must get a move on – I have someone coming for an 11am appt and I have been lolling in my bed trying to to alleviate a migraine.

It saddens me that these days hosting spinning group almost always gives me a migraine. I need to rethink my approach, I think.

Oh, there’s a mystery sock KAL for Socktoberfest. Shall I? (Ravelry account required KAL here)

    You’re leading me astray. I’ve joined Socktoberfest!

    Are you going to do the mystery sock KAL ?

    I might, but I’ll need to finish the Monster Sock first to free up the needles.

    I might not go as far as that, but I like the look of the magic loop… so might try that – if I’ve got a circular needle the right sort of size!

    Oh, I *am* stupid!

    I have my Magic Loop circs all ready at hand. I can do the mystery sock by Magic Loop and get 2-for-1 – which means that the Monster Sock can stay on the DPNs… but I really must finish it soon.
