Not Much to Look At



Is it better to post boringly, or not to post at all?

Not much to see here, mostly because I spent most of last night un-knitting the body. I was using Size 8 needles and it was way too tight and stiff. Of course, I was way off gauge. Perhaps doing a gauge swatch would have been a good idea! the pattern even suggests starting with a sleeve to check gauge. But no, I didn't do that. And I'm still not doing it, I'm just trying again with Size 9s.

I made more progress on Will's socks, but they're too boring even to take a picture of. However they kept me busy on the car trip to New Haven and back. That was before I read the thread about knitting in the car. I should probably learn to knit socks on circulars. But I like my DPNs!

I have a long "To Do" list, and this is not on it.

I read that post too (about driving while knitting) though for the life of me I can't remember where. It made me feel a little bit better about *not* being able to knit in the car.

Sorry about the Wallaby.
