The rest of you, keep watching for knitting content. I promise there will be some. In fact, I'm happy to report that there was plenty of knitting this weekend. I worked on the 2006 Christmas Scarves (yes, that's not a typo), the Nancy Bush Traveller's Socks, and the Waving Lace Socks.
I finished Sock #1 of Waving Lace. Ends woven in, toe kitchenered. All I gots ta do is wash and block. Oh, and knit Sock #2.
As for the Travellers, I noticed a big gauge discrepancy between them and the Waving Laces. The Wavings were knit on size #1 Crystal Palace DPNs. The Travellers were cast on to size #0 Addis. The Travellers were at least 2 inches wider than the Wavings, which actually fit.
I decided to swatch (OMG, stop the presses) AND (sit down) wash/block the swatches.
It appears that I need to do these on size #000. Or whatever those teensy tiny blue Susan Bates hypodermic needle-type DPNs are that I scavenged from my needle stash.
In other news, Friday afternoon was lovely, and I finally spent some time playing with my horse. I even rode around bareback for awhile. It was good.
