Not all that much going on here – that university education takes up a lot of time, dangit!
I’m about 8.5″ up the back of Katy – I’m lengthening the body for sure, as I don’t think 12.25″ is long enough to the underarm shaping! I’m contemplating making the armhole longer too, but that involves looking at the cap shaping on the sleeves…well, I’ll think about it. It’s working up really nicely in the Cotton Fleece – I don’t know if I’d want something bulkier for this. And everything but the cabling row is pretty mindless, and therefore quick!
I finished the first Irving Park sock already – yeah, I know, that was fast even for me! I’m really getting into the subway knitting thing, as I used to just sleep on that 30 minute ride. Although…this morning I tried to knit but decided to rest me eyes instead. At any rate, knitting on the subway is occurring.
I did what I thought was a pretty long cuff on the first sock, and it turned out a nice length considering the maximum stretch of the cast-on, but I’ve got tons of yarn left over.
See the start of the second sock there? That’s still the first ball of yarn! For my next Lorna’s Laces pair (in the “Vera” colourway), I’m going to do knee socks, top down. I’ll see how much mileage I get out of the rest of the first skein on these ones and extrapolate from there. Oh, and I think I’ll go down to 60 stitches for the next sock; although these are great, they could be snugger.
I’ve started the second sleeve of Cloud finally, and I hope to have the entire thing done this weekend!
