In Which the Pirate Considers Socks.
Pirate-Husband finally agrees that the legs of his socks are long enough. I held one up to his actual leg last night and pointed out that its top matched exactly with where the sock he’d been wearing left a line just under his calf muscle. Tonight, the heel flap (and I’m not sure it’s a coincidence that I mis-typed “hell flap” first). It’s an 80-stitch sock, so I’m planning a 40-row, 40-stitch flap, based on the fact that my last sock was 72 stitches and I did a 36-row, 36-stitch flap which came out just right.
Cookie A. will be teaching a sock design workshop in September at Nature’s Yarns in Fairfax, and I got the last spot on the sign-up sheet! I’m so excited. It’s a 6-8 hour class, and includes lunch. I’d already been pondering some ideas for designs, but I’m sure this class will give me the kickstart I need to put my ideas together into an actual sock!
I want to knit now.
Yay, so you signed up & got in! We can be class buddies! I’m just about at the heel flap of the 2nd sock of the pair I designed at the class I took with Cookie in April, & I’m thinking of doing another design for the Sock Knitters Anonymous (Ravelry) June sockdown. (Guess I’m becoming a Cookie A Groupie & a design junkie!)
Sounds like an awesome opportunity! :D
