Anyways, back to the grind.

I've been meaning to do a major post for two weeks. It just hasn't been happening. Right now, I'd love to, but I'm so invested in these socks I'm making for Julia. It took me a week to get the nerve up to actually cast on for the second sock. I did the entire foot in two nights, so I have that going for myself, and I'm working on the short row heel right now. Ideally, I'll have them done before knitting on Saturday so I can just bring my simple garter stitch blanket with me. It requires a lot of cutting and spit splicing, but at least it isn't herringbone stitch. Really, I can say that about anything at this point. "Well, I may have lost an arm in a shark attack, but at least I never have to worry about doing herringbone stitch again." It's a two row repeat, it shouldn't be this miserable; it's just so fiddly. Bleh.
