You could get both of these out of one ball if you didn’t mind them not matching. Since I matched, I ended up running out on the second orange stripe of the toe on the second sock, but luckily I did have another ball. When I finished the toe on the first one, I only had one row (the grafting row) in yellow, but of course on the second one I had a significant amount of yellow! So I ripped back the first toe a few rows and inserted some yellow. They’re still not even, but whatever. One Christmas present down!
And what’s this woman to do when stacks of presents and work knitting pile around her?
Cast on for a new sweater. Obviously. Hey, I’m cold!
We’re supposed to get our first real snowstorm tonight – all I can say is, HOLD OFF until after my driving test this afternoon!! Yes folks, it’s taken me almost 5 years with a G1 (learner’s permit-type dealie) to finally learn how to drive (I took the school in August) and take the first test. Ontario has a graduated licensing system, so I’ll have to take another, more difficult road test in a year to get my full license. Wish me luck!
