It seems we are being given a gift! School vacation has been extended by a day (and likely will be extended by another day tomorrow) because of a snowstorm. We are going to enjoy this gift by catching up on some Kumon, knitting a lot and doing some shoveling at some point, later. Even H who had planned to work from home has been given a half day off today, and tomorrow off entirely.
I made good use of my knitting time yesterday. I studied the pattern which normally is a simple read through but since this pattern is in German required that I work some translation magic. I then came up with a plan. I am using the numbers from the pattern and the charts but I am knitting my socks cuff down and I’ll work my usual heel. I am being completely zen about the beads. I have dumped the three containers into one larger container and I just randomly pick one out when it’s time to place one. If I start to fuss about 2 of the same color being near each other I will never get a row done. In my mind this is totally doable and should work out just fine. Wait, do you hear ominous music?
