Whee!

OK, so co-worker sent me home early today...like, at 3:30. I was at the daycare by 4:15, ya'll! So, I figured I had time to play a bit tonight.

I tossed the shuttle for about 30 minutes, then had to answer the siren song of the CSM. I got my sock #2 done (except for closing the toes...I'll do them later. I like to Kitchner in big batches, for some reason), and completed Himself's sock #1. I'm ready to CO for #2, but am too blurry tonight to do it.

I'm using a "new" CO method - usually I do a tiny hem top; this time I'm "e-wrapping" (think backwards loop over the needle CO. Same thing, basically)...it looks nice, not as "heavy" as the hem top...but it's a bitch to execute without dropping stitches. Must practise this.

There's a way you can do a selvedge edge, by taking some of the cylinder needles out of work for a round, and having the ribber needles out for..2 rounds, I think, but I've not been successful at it yet (and I've been using my CSM since 2001...)

I'll finish Himself's pair tomorrow, and start on a pair for Herself. The socks I made me were...Opal, I think, Purple and black self-patterning. Herself likes purple, so this will be good. I have more than enough to make her a large pair of tube socks.

:yawn: Must rustle up a bedtime snack, then coax the kidlets into bed. I'm tired!

    Sorry for the radio silence; it's been quiet around here. Not a whole lot going on - and I haven't had the urge to babble. :sigh: Let's see....…
