Yesterday was a good knitting day!
I made serious progress on the baby jacket I’m knitting on commission (Thank you, Cathe, for helping me with the proper nomenclature!).
At gymnastics last night, with 2 hours of sitting still before me, I decided to cast on for a commissioned pair of socks. I had brought a couple pattern candidates with me, but none of them were really ringing my chimes. One thing led to another* and I ended up with a sketch for a new design that will work nicely for socks. I think it’s going to be modifyable (spellcheck doesn’t think this is a word) for DK/sport weight socks as well, and the finished pattern will include instructions for both.
I find it fascinating how my handwriting changes when I’m designing a pattern. Most of the time, I have relatively neat handwriting. When I’m designing, it’s horrid. Reprehensible. I wonder why that is?
Off to knit through some more U.S. Open. Rory’s on a tear and it’s fun to watch!
*”One thing lead to another” is an adopted family joke line from Brian Regan’s comedy act. If you could hear my boys read that phrase, you’d be treated to a 5-10 minute rendition of “The Best of Brian Regan” by my sons. Regan’s got 2 performances on Netflix, and they’re suitable for family entertainment. The stuff about “art” kills me every time.
