If there was a word for the sound you make when you furtively peep from under an umbrella when it finally stops raining, I would use it today. It is taking willpower of biblical might to focus on this entry as I am being pursued by the persistent thought of knitting in the shade with an icecream. I know. Sounds good, doesn’t it? As alluring the thought of unsheathing my purple-white Irish legs to the sun is, the feat of having completed my first toe-up sock must take priority.
I haven’t even woven in the ends yet. Here’s the heel…
… and the toe. Both are worked in garter stitch short rows. Very easy.
I have also been going hell-for-yoke on the Cashsilk top. I actually completed the yoke this morning but I still need to fit it on and make sure. The next step will be to separate off the sleeves, finish the “V” for the v-neck and then start the bust darts. It’ll be easy going once I get the sleeves off.
I have been knitting on this mostly whilst watching Twin Peaks. I’ve watched it right from the start and I am about two-thirds of the way through. As with all David Lynch stuff, there’s been a lot of screaming (mostly mine, but not all I’ll have you know). And I have been highly entertained by both the main guy and David Duchovny’s appearance as a cross-dressing FBI agent.
