I have been quite busy with work this week: I attended an archival preservation workshop conference in DC (shout out to my fellow librarian/archivist readers!) and it has eaten up all of my time. Very little time to knit…
In fact, the knitting I did was quickly deemed unsuitable.
This was my knitting progress on the Shades sock at the knit night with the NYC Spiders. I was rolling – going with the pattern. Looking good and closing in on the heel turn.
Then, on the way home from the City, I met an interesting stranger on the train. We chatted the whole way from New York to Baltimore. She was a designer and an artist, and shared storied about her mother who has worked with fiber for years as a knitter, spinner, and weaver.
I found a way to completely mess up an easy lace pattern. Dropped stitches, misplaced yarn overs…
Shades Sock #2 is back to square one.
At least Katy is making some great progress on the pattern!
