All day Tuesday the warnings were broadcast. The gas pumps were pumping non stop. I didn’t brave a trip into the grocery, but I sm sure the shelves were empty. And by 11:00 pm the snow finally started. And now we are “snowed in”, well as much as our area usually gets snowed in. LOL I plan to knit all day since I won’t get to the knit shop to knit.
Today’s project was a recent request from College Girl while she was home on break. I finally realized I better get going on them the Wednesday before she was due to head back to school on the following Sunday. Eek! But boot cuffs are quick, so no worry.
I love the Entangled Boot Cuff pattern so it was natural I would revisit it. I cast on and worked on these at hockey, at home, at a diving meet, and in the car. At one point Hubster questioned if they would be done in time. Pshaw! Easy peasy. Then on Saturday morning College Girl doubted her mother’s capabilities. At that point I was on the ribbing at the end of the 2nd cuff, so I told her to shut her mouth and not disrespect her mother! And just like that, they were done.
And except for the lack of yarn to finish the bind off on the 2nd, they are perfect and no cables were mis-crossed in the making. But yes, I ran out of yarn at the end, so I tinked back and stole half a round from the ribbing, and still ran short. So I knotted the end yarn with the cast on excess and finished them off. Whew! I didn’t make the end ribbing as long as the pattern instructs because I wanted to get them out of 1 skein. And I succeeded, but next time, just buy more yarn!
In reading I have been doing a read along with friends. Well, mine was an audio along. It’s easier to listen and knit than read and knit. “The Choice” was the book chosen. While I didn’t love it, I didn’t hate it. I did not care for the narrator. Disliked the way he tried to emmulate a woman’s voice. I guess I found the story trite and predictable.
