no whales here gov
I turned my first toe! I've turned a heel before, but this is my first proper toe-up (... doing Knitty's falling leaves). I spent way too much time on it today, considering I set myself the aim of writing a draft of my children's literature conference paper. I thought about trying the sock pattern in this winter's Interweave too, but I think I'll save that for HipKnits cashmere; this knitty one works well for the strong colour verigation.
I also surfed through way too much sock-weight yarn porn but was good and only ordered needles, which I needed. After battling with my incredibly loose gage, I've finally given in to 2mm's - its the only way I can even come close to gage for most 2.25mm patterns. And I'm serious about the whole knitting mainly socks thing.
Knitting cinema tomorrow morning. Then home to bake brownies. They are to pay my "model" on sunday. He's going to be modelling something I knitted and we're going to take shots by the river. And that's all I'm saying about it now. But we're going to have to wrap up warm because its forecast a bit of a chiller.
