My sister sent this delicious link to a reprise of Saturday’s big game.
I spoke to Rachel last night. She had – was still having – a nice birthday, but didn’t get the present we sent first class on Thursday. I had been looking forward to her pleasure in it.
Thanks for the link to Stephen Colbert, Theresa. Presumably I could find some of him on YouTube? Did he ever do anything about the Ravelympics, to earn his socks?
And thanks for the video about the crochet cast-on, Judith. I should have thought that there would be such things somewhere. I have added the link to my lengthening electronic list of sock-y things-to-do. Next must be Judy’s Magic Cast-On, but next after that, the crochet chain. At a very cursory glance, Candace’ revolutionary socks (which require a provisional cast-on) look similar to the short-row toes & heels in other sources. It will be fun to tease out the differences.
Part of the delight of this project is studying similarities and differences – the taxonomy of sock-knitting. Pairing up the Strong and the Fleegle heels was a great moment. So far, the Sweet Tomato seems to be in a class by itself.
I tried Alexander’s sock on my husband, and it fits snugly, a great comfort. So I have recovered the stitches and should, even allowing for the usual Sunday inertia, get somewhere near the ribbing today.
