Aloha. How was your Halloween?
My neighbor took this pic of Jellybean and her son yesterday after the Halloween parade. This daughter was organized this year. As soon as October came she wanted to order her costume on Prime. The ten-year-old has been some species of cat the past few years. All we could find was a tiger costume so she ended up choosing that. Hmmm…(*ゝ(ェ)･)ﾉ.｡o○ maybe I’ll be a good enough sewer by next year so that I can actually sew her a costume? That would be some goal, yeah? I also think I’d like to make a Harry Potter cloak for myself.
Jellybean and I ventured out near 7 p.m. and just walked the blocks she felt in the mood to. I looked at my phone and saw we walked a mile. Last year we had walked the whole two miles of our neighborhood niche.
The houses behind us give out the most candy as many of them are lit up for trick-or-treaters. I was amazed at how many little ones live in our neighborhood. I’m glad our niche represented because I feel it’s important to support our neighbors who want to give out candy.
Well it’s that time of the month again where Kat, Katherine, Paula, and I share what’s going on with our sock projects. Those of you who are fellow sock knitters, please think about joining in each month. We’d love to have you in our circle.
When the ladies have their posts up, I’ll update their links so you can drop by and see what they’ve been up to:
Knitting for myself is still on the back burner. Earlier during the month, I managed to get a bit farther than this in my San Diego Roses WIP.
So before I had started knitting this pattern I had read in one Raveler’s notes, that next time she’d place waste yarn in-between where the toes would be. I thought that was a very good idea because it made me think of Susan B. Anderson’s Smooth Operator Socks pattern and how easy it was for me to unravel the yarn where the afterthought heels would go.
You see in the photo what I ran into after unraveling the toe placement yarn. I almost freaked out. (/-(ｴ)-＼) However, I got it together and realized it was okay:
- Cut this piece in half.
- Place each sock’s loose stitches onto DPN’s.
- Working on one sock first, rip back a little on it.
- Split splice one end of the yarn ball to the sock end.
- Recount the number of rounds I have on the foot area; if I need to knit some more to get to that recorded number on my stitch counter, then easy peasy lemon squeezy.
- Continue on to knit a rounded toe.
So that’s the plan for each sock’s toe. After that I would move onto the afterthought heels. I hope to finish this pair of socks by the winter holidays as I want to cast on for Little Bobbins’s annual, Christmas Eve Cast On.
That’s it for today. I’ve been good on responding to your comments via WP if you blog via that or back on your Blogspot blog. I do need to catch up on blogs again. I been feeling more relaxed about reading blogs since I’ve come back; I promised myself I don’t need to panic or get anxious if I can’t read right then and there what’s posted every day because we all understand how life can get busy, giving priority to other tasks. ٩(*ゝڡ◕๑)۶♥ Mahalo nui loa for your visits and for hangin’ ten with me. TTYL. Aloha.
