This is the progress on the Sunrise Sock by the end of the Montreal Knitting Guild meeting. 104 rows of foot. I still don’t know what treatment I want for the cuff…I’d like to do something that has the same slant as the stripes, but I’m afraid if I try to do slanted ribbing I’ll just end up with a weird variation of moss stitch with no stretch to it. I’m going to go through my copy of Knitting on the Edge to see if anything strikes my fancy.
In the meantime I’m making excellent progress on the baby girl sweater. Last night I finished the back (which I started yesterday morning) and did the front to the armpit BOs. I plan to finish the front before I leave this morning, and do the sleeves this afternoon. My goal, if it should work out, is to have a completed baby sweater by bed time. I LOVE baby clothes!
*I say this for you sun-loving people. Me, I prefer a full-out rainy day everytime. If I wake up and sun is streaming in through the open window my first reaction is to squint and want to pull the blankets over my head. But if there’s gray light coming in, a cool mist in the air and the sound of rain hitting anything…THAT energizes me like no sun ever could.
