Not me :-( Yesterday was going to be all about sock knitting. I have the cuff on one done and 1/2 of the cuff of it's mate; and planned on finishing that and maybe getting one heel done.
Then, I remembered that I needed to get busy on the afghan blocks (I promised 2) for Laurie's grandma. My calendar says I am going to mail then on Friday. Quick knit, no problem, right?
Umm. I knocked one out quickly using my face cloth pattern. Then on to more interesting things. Out comes the stitch book and I chose a really simple one called Double Moss, K2P2 one row, P2, K2 next row. Check the yarn label. 5 stitches/inch with #7 needles. I need an 8" sqaure. Therefore, cast on 40. Right? Not in this house. Initially it was right on. But I guess I was knitting too loose because after 2 inches this thing was huge. Size down in needles. Now too small.
I really want to knit socks so try again but this time I did the K2, P2 on one side and just K on the other. It will go faster and I can get to the socks. Yep. It did go faster. It also went smaller. It would block out, but since it's superwash and will be probably going in a dryer I don't think blocking is the answer. Try again and again. I still don't have gauge LOL
At least I think I know what I will be doing this evening.
A friend of mine is in serious medical trouble so much of the knitting was updated with phone calls. It's been decided that all of us showing up at the hospital is quite wearing so we take turns. And we've come up with quite a good calling circle thing. Things had quieted down by late afternoon. Not really better, but not getting in more trouble. Then the phone rang last night. I heard someone say "How are you?" below static. Lots of static. They called back. More static and I couldn't hear anyone. There are areas around here where cell phone reception sucks so then I had to start calling to see if someone was calling me. Nope. But of course, we had to chat awhile. :-) That meant I didn't get to see my Steelers lose LOL. There's always a good side, I suppose. I keep saying that anyway.
And now it's off to Monday. I just know it's going to be a slow week since I'm looking to a fiber-y Friday and Saturday. So...maybe I will finally get gauge. Ya think?
