Tuesdays are hard
But at least this one included Chinese food for lunch, sushi for dinner, and more cinema knitting. I saw "Mrs. Henderson Presents" and it was perfectly delightful. Judi Dench rocks. And Bob Hoskins was quite charming. And i got a lot of knitting done. Apparently I'm a better cinema knitter than I am a bedtime knitter because I seem to make far fewer errors in the dark of a movie theater.
I discovered that my brilliant plan of staving off pooling through varying my wrong side knitting techniques is just a little less than brilliant. It seems my gauge is the same either way. I was hoping that a touch of change would shake up the yarn a bit, but no such luck. I will say that it is far easier to knit backwards in the dark than it is to purl in the dark, so I'm sticking to that method for a while.
I think I've decided to do a yoke on this one. And the Divine Miss M wants large (or rather, "big big big BIG huge" red buttons. i'm thinking the button band is going to end up being 14 rows if this keeps up. I will say that her favorite shirts are those with three big big big BIG huge buttons down the front, because she can put it on herself but it gives her a little greater sense of accomplishment than a regular old pull over your head kind of shirt. Plus she never puts it on backwards.
Finished one of Marco's socks. It's too short. I was following the sock pattern in Ann Budd's handy book to the letter since he wasn't around for measuring when I cast on. But i thought it was looking rather large so i stopped early and slapped on a toe. I should have trusted the pattern.
Oh, and when i asked him to try it on, he asked which foot it was for. Apparently in his world socks are foot-specific, like shoes.
