back to socks
With my Scrub•Bee dishcloth project complete, it was time to reacquaint myself with my Glynis socks. But halfway through the first round of the set-up for the leg pattern on the second sock I realized I'd done the ribbed cuff wrong. An error of inattention, I think. Just mindlessly ribbing K2P2s halfway across the second needle instead of minding the chart. So I've ripped it all out, so that I can start again tonight.
In the meantime, my stack of hats for the Burera Hospital in Rwanda is slowly growing. These little hats have been my take along projects - compact and easy for knitting on buses, subways and trains, and for knitting at work. On the subway yesterday a passenger opposite me was knitting a complicated sock pattern, toe-up, two-at-a-time, magic loop. Impressive, that. I can only manage short rows of ribbing or stockinette on transit. Imagine being caught mid-row on something complicated when your stop is announced!
