Here's what I did this week:
Friday I did this,
Sunday I did this (I taped an earlier episode),
Monday I did this ("Get Fit!") and walked for 45 minutes,
Tuesday I did this (I taped an earlier episode),
Wednesday I did this,
& today I did this (extra credit for doing Fit TV's Carribean Workout in very non-Carribean Western Pennsylvania).
I'm making much quicker progress on the second sock than I did the first one.
I really, really tried to start sock #2 at the same place in the color wash as sock #1, but, as you can see, I wasn't too successful. This is a lot easier when the sock yarn has a definite stripe to it. Kate says that she doesn't care...she likes it just the way it is. (She must have seen the maniacal look I was getting in my eyes!) The lady at Knit Wits, whom I called to ask for some pointers, said that many people prefer to have the socks a bit different. (She must have heard the maniacal sound in my voice!) I'm so transparent. I hope to have the socks done this weekend so I can begin 3 bear sweaters for Kathy. Mom is having knee-replacement surgery on Monday so I'll be knitting in the waiting room. This is the first time I've knit for cash...I'm a bit nervous that everything will go wrong! You know how you can make something a hundred times (like your favorite cookies or whatever) and then you try to make it for someone else and it's a disaster? That's what I'm afraid of.
Some day I'd like to make this for me!
Isn't it fantastic?? I saw it on the Yarn Harlot's review of Inspired Cable Knits by Fiona Ellis. I think I'd make it exactly like the picture...same color and everything. The ties on the sleeves may have to go though. I can just see me getting sucked into the copier at the church or being dragged down the street by the school bus. Now, where can I get the model's thin thighs?
