Massive sock progress

Today I:

  • had a bowl of cereal with rice milk for breakfast
  • ate a banana for Second Breakfast
  • am having a Vending Machine Lunch again (Don't look at me like that. It's cold outside!)
  • am rediscovering through email with my sisters that there really are three sides to one story through two people... if you know what I mean. Ah, family!

Well, maybe massive is overstating the case, but I have gotten some knitting done. You can see the wave better now.

As per Lissy's request, I will post the pattern for this sock when I'm done with it. I'm not certain whether I should take the abbreviated chart approach or the detailed by line ad nauseum approach to the instructions. I tend to prefer looking at charts and thinking about it but I know a lot of people are accustomed to reading lines of literal instructions, and both have their pros and cons.

In other knitting news

Last night I had a good Vietnamese dinner with the North End knitters and Knitzalot. I try not to pass up opportunities to prove how much of pig I can be when I eat, and last night was no exception. I made it pretty clear how I feel about squid, I think. I could go for some more right now, even. Too bad I've only got this cup of noodles.

My knit gifts for Sibling #1 and her children are officially lost in the mail. This is due to an address change that I did not know about, which then led to the emails between me, her, and Sibling #7 that I mentioned in my opening list. Maybe I should email Sibling #5 and see what she has to say, since she was there, too. I'm going to make an effort to not to feel that this has anything to do with me living 2000 miles away. Nobody told me anything when I lived in California, either.

Sibling #8 still hasn't gotten back to me about what she wants for her birthday (last week) and I know my inquiry should have reached her in time so I am not going to bother feeling bad about it. If she wants free stuff from me, she knows where to find me. So there!

Last night, I:

  • had fried noodles with squid, scallops, and shrimp along with a Vietnamese beer
  • dug into The Plague, yay!

One thought for your sock pattern is that you do both, the chart and the line by line. Personally I am a chart person, much easier to remember in picture than in words. Sorry that we missed last night, we were at Webs for 3 hours.
