Waiting Room Knitting
Knitting this sock kept my attention focused. But when the hospital stay was over, I frogged the sock because there was going to one large problem: not enough yarn. The needles I used were too small (2.75mm) and should have been 3.25mm, which in itself made for a very dense fabric. Will I do the cables again? Probably, but not with this yarn. I think a solid color would show them off better. In fact, a totally different pair of socks have been cast on using the larger sized needles and a smaller sized sock. Should work, I hope.
For you knitters out there, see the yellow row marker? Do you see what I did? I made it into a fob and can clip it right to the knitted fabric or use it as a marker. I got tired of chasing that silly thing across the room and this was an aha! moment.
I want to thank everyone for their well wishes to hubby. It is very appreciated. He is doing well and I will be able to return to work next week.
