Hi friends!
Thanks for your concern about the cancellations. I do charge a cancellation fee, but it's not the same as getting paid the full amount for tutoring. It DOES give me more knitting time, though! I have the body done on the lacy bamboo top. I'm working on the neck now.

Ann, have fun at the BBQ!

Julie, I'm right there with you about kids getting pregnant! NOT a good choice! I can't believe how many kids are sexually active, though. TALK to you kids often and early.

Jess, glad your hand is better. Be careful! Stretch and rest before you need to!

Welcome, Annie! Tell us a little about yourself! Your socks sound great! Can you LINK to your pics?

LadyV, I hate it when I drop stitches. I have that book, too. I need to give it to DH cuz he keeps handing me his knitting when me messes up.

QOTD: Same as Julie, but I do the double-wrap short-row heel.

Here's a picture of the hanging towel I made with the new I Love This Cotton from HL. It washed up even softer than before and no noticeable pilling! I'm lovin' the yarn!

Here's the afore promised pic.



Of course, now that it's looking so good and anyone in the know can tell what it's becoming, I've somehow managed another snafoo and have to figure out how to fix it. I can't even desribe what it looks like I may have done. This will be included the next time I order from TLE.
And I really, really, really need to order this so I can have more than one sock going at a time. Every time something like this happens, I feel stuck until I can fix it without sweaty palms at the thought of having to completely frog. It would be nice to have something else I can work on for a bit to keep my confidence going steady.

But, it is pretty amazing how I'm getting it. The other few times I've started trying my hand at socks, I was just following the pattern. I was basically nothing more than a complete novice. This time around, however, I'm seeing how the pattern works. One round of stitches followed by a different round of stitches will produce a certain effect. I'm remembering what comes next. It makes sense to me that (with this certain pattern) a k2tog at the beginning "equals" the ssk at the end. And of course you have to have the yo2 in the middle to keep the same number of sts and produce that element of the pattern. And when I fixed that dropped st last night, the diagrams in the book made complete sense. I got it. It was clear (as opposed to "I'm seeing it, and I'm reading what to do, but huh?").

I feel like the TARDIS has gotten into my head and I am finally speaking sock!

Lady V - I like the baby crochet hook. I went to my sewing kit and pulled out one of the tread pullers


And use that.

But I may have to get the baby crochet hook

Right now I've got one of those really long hook things you use to fix picks in sweaters. It works fine (well, it did last night), but I'm a little concerned about it possibly catching on the yarn.
