Progress: Hope is Still Alive...

So last night, I laid out the sock plan to Mr. S:

"So, the new socks are on size 2s, so they go much faster. That, and I really have the pattern down, so it should go pretty quickly. So if I knit maniacally for the next few days, I can maybe get them finished."

"And that is different than any other day because...?"

Snarky, Mr. S. Real Snarky.

The bad news: prime knitting time on Friday afternoon will be lost since I am the parent helper that day at Rosebud's school.

The good news: this is how much I did in about 24 hours of knitting...



Ann: the yarn over cable is a pattern from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks, p.43, and no cable needles necessary. Believe me when I tell you, I would sooner drive a cable needle through my ear drum that knit cables on US1s before Sunday.

Go Liz Go!!!

I am so reassured about the cables ... I was going to have to organize some kind of knitting intervention ... and it was going to be ugly.
