Big clutz that I am, I stubbed my toe on the door frame Saturday night, and of course, I broke it. It’s really amazing that I’ve never broken a toe before now, with the amount of toe-stubbing that goes on with me. Here’s a (blurry) pic of the purple and blue mess:
I have it “buddy taped” and I wear a lovely post-op shoe that is awkward as heck to walk in. It still hurts like the dickens too. Oh well. C’est la vie!
I blocked my Master Knitter Swatch #3. I think it looks acceptable (I hope!!):
And, after about three attempts, I think I have an acceptable Swatch #1:
I didn’t realize I had such trouble getting ribbing to look even. The ribbing on my socks looks great – maybe the fact that they’re knit on 0’s and 1’s has something to do with that?! (And possibly the fact that they’re knit in the round). When I actually pay close attention to my knitting it seems harder to get a consistent tension!! I’m still worried that the ribbing is too loose. And I hate how my selvage stitches look. I may try to knit this one again when all is said and done. I want to move on to another one though, since I’m fed up with this one! Two down, 14 to go!!
I’m still plugging away at dad’s socks – I’m just past the calf of the second sock. Two weeks to go – I really need to get busy!! Plus I have several things I want to knit for my Etsy shop. I need more hours in the day!! (or at least some more hours free of the kids!! – The pitfalls of being a SAHM – no time away from the kids!!)
Oh well, back to the kids now. It’s really funny (not!) trying to chase around two boys with a broken toe!
