The Primavera socks are coming along great. I’m a tad worried about whether I made the shaft too long, i.e. that the 100g won’t be enough. Which would be horrific, cause then I’d have to frog the whole foot and heel. Tragic. Speaking of heel, I did that in a simple slip stitch pattern (R1 sl1, k1; R2 k1 sl1) which shows the yarn off beautifully. I kind of wish I’d done the whole sock that way. But no way I’m frogging over 90 rows of leg plus the heel.
It’s another pretty public project. I’ve worked on it on the train, in the hospital (my grandmother got dizzy and in the wake of her recent surgery, she wanted to get checked through), and I’m taking it with me to my History class meetup tonight.
Yeah, it doesn’t really look like strawberries. But to me, it looks like tomatoes and mozzarella with basil – which is almost better.
Maybe these will even last me until the end of the month, when I’m very likely to go to Leipzig again. Maybe. Or I’ll have to find another project with money I don’t have to procrastinate on Q.
