The Hubster left town last week for football, so of course I had some knitters over. I needed some hostess-friendly knitting, so I busted out the Shokay I got on sale a few months ago and got started on my Koolhaas hat.
Getting through the cast-on and ribbing was no problem at all, but I managed to mess up the first round of the pattern. However, nobody but me is ever going to know or notice, so screw it. It’s staying.
In other news, I have several enabling friends who pushed me into doing the “12 in 2012” sock-knitting challenge. I cast on my friend digitalnabi’s Dawn Gnot socks in yarn dyed by my friend Sairy on Sunday. The first full day of knitting was a little rocky, but it’s going like gangbusters now. Much fun!
Sadly, the crafting news is not all wonderful and happy. Marianne’s socks boomeranged on me. I haven’t gotten detailed information, but I’m betting the cuffs are too tight. I’ll confirm before I rip and re-knit the cuffs (yay toe up!) on a far larger needle. Here’s hoping it’s a pretty quick process.
