The second Vanessa antiopa sock was finished on Wednesday afternoon. I immediately turned to the first sock and frogged it back to re-knit the toe where a dropped stitch had been found after I grafted. As I worked I began to register the fact that the pattern on the foot was in the same direction as the second sock that I had just knitted. How could that be? I was very careful to check my Ravelry notes and to make a Right sock as the first had been a Left. I have however got two Right socks now, to go on my two Left feet.
I’m calling at an FO. I don’t have the heart to frog and re-knit a whole sock.
I picked up the Hap for Harriet and took it on the ferry to town yesterday, where it made reasonable progress on the way out (3 repeats.) We got the car back from the garage and the nasty noise had gone. I took quite a few photographs as we wandered about, particularly enjoying myself with builder’s materials, and then we went to Helgi’s for a belated birthday meal. A quick dash around Tesco and it was time to head back to the boat.
Less progress was made on the return leg as we were out on deck in the sunshine and there is nowhere to sit on the Earls. I took more photos as we went, including a WIP shot of my knitting. The Hap has reached a stage now where I can detect what a lovely drape and handle it is going to have. I am liking it a lot. It has not quite reached the stage of knitting 108 stitches in a row 🙂
The Earls are still not in full use of their bow doors, so we had to back off at Loth. That was when we heard the new noise from the car. It’s a special going-backwards noise and it goes clicketty-click.
It’s another long weekend for us. We bought concrete yesterday and Mr L is going to fill in the gaps in the floor today. At the moment he is trying to assess whether both ends of the floor are at the same height. They seem to have a 5mm difference and we are wondering how best to cope with that.
