Yarn, needles, coffee, ipod - check. Pattern yet to be decided!
Today's newspaper headline proves that I am not cheating ;-)
Helpfully, the weather looks like there is nothing better to do than snuggle up under a blanket and knit.
Cuff and first pattern repeat done, pattern Embossed Leaves.
Hmm... I have no idea if I can make it yet.
In case anyone is wondering why I knit them in baby blue - it might be known here and there that I cannot stand wearing blue (except for jeans). The plan is to cheat a little on this knit a sock in a day challenge by knitting socks for a friend. Two shoe sizes smaller than my own feet, hehe.
Leg finished, time to start the heel!
Only the unexpected, foul play or an injury can stop me now!
22:50 - Done!
Unwashed, unblocked and blurry. Wow.
To sum up, there were days in my life sure more worthwhile than today. On the other hand, I've seen worse. So, tomorrow the second? I don't think so - but I will cast on.
Stats: 39 g (or 152 m) of SandnessGarn Lanett, colour 4904. 5 bamboo needles, 2 stitchmarkers,1 tapestry needle, 1 pattern with absolutely no changes neccessary, exept not cutting the yarn at the heel.
Stimulants: 3 cups of coffee, 5 cups of Rooibos tea, 9(!) hours of the 24h (!) dramatised version of Tad Williams' Otherland, 2 glasses of red wine, this evening's TV programme (Desperate Housewives, Without a trace - the latter so boring that I could already use the time for a photo shoot and posting)
Thanks for cheering!
