Very early this morning, I finished the Diamondback Socks. As I said, they were so fun to knit. I would love to start another pair right now but the next sock pattern comes out tomorrow afternoon and it involves beads . . something else I’ve never done.
The pattern was a bit challenging to figure out but once I got going, it was so fun watching each section develop. The only problems I had were because I don’t fully read directions and had I read and paid attention, I wouldn’t have had any problems at all. The second sock went a whole lot more smoothly (and more quickly) than did the first one.
My hands need a break. Between all the knitting, picking and shelling peas/beans, they’re aching and feeling their age! 🙂
Today I shall do some more cleaning, meal planning and maybe even go to town . . we’ll see . . that’s a big step for me and one I avoid until I can no longer avoid it. I have to go either today or tomorrow because I surely don’t want to go on Saturday when Vince would be with me. That always means we bring home way more than I had planned to get.
And, there are more peas to shell. I picked cream peas last night and getting those put up will take a good chunk of my day so . . it will be a busy day with no knitting I’m sure.
