5, 6 pick up...

second sock knitting was humming along quite well, and then i came to the picking up stitches part. this place in a sock always makes me pause, hesitate, question my ability. i gave it a try and failed. the stitches looked stretched and abused. i couldn't quite find my rhythm. i blamed it on the terrible lighting making it a challenge to work the dark brown parts of the yarn. so i ripped the stitches out and put the sock away, deciding it was best to pick up stitches during the day. which i did, the very next day. with no problem. figured out the stumbling blocks, found my rhythm and on went the stitches. now if i could just finish the sock by father's day...

sorry, no pictures. our computer is still out of commission.

Good for you for keeping going. It's tough when we get stalled!

I knew there was a good reason not to do socks. ;)

We were so glad to have met you the other evening - and we'll have to meet again next time we visit California, or perhaps the next time you visit Scotland. ;)
