A Little Knitting, A Bit Of Life

I know this photo looks like yesterday but it’s not the same photo. I was unhappy with the holes so I ripped out what I had done and did some research. As I suspected there were a number of people who ran into the same problem. I’ll try the suggestions and see what happens when I sit down to knit later.

For anyone considering this pattern: it gets easier. On the first time through I really needed the various additional information that is offered. By the time I started back in last night I was able to just use the written pattern. I still have a mess of twisted yarn but that I can live with.

Last night at the emergency school committee meeting, which they requested people watch on TV and not attend, they announced the plan to close the schools for two weeks beginning next week and explained the recently created distance learning plan. By the time we were thinking about heading to bed the phone rang and we learned that school is cancelled tomorrow too. There is a presumptive case of Coronavirus in the school community. It’s a relief to know what the plan is and a relief to know we can hunker down at home. Stay healthy people! Look out for your neighbors! Remember we are all in this together!

    It does look much better. So glad you found some help too. Twisted yarn is a bit of a headache but manageable compared to holes in heels.

  2. Glad it is getting easier! Are you feeling better about it? Glad too that the school has a plan in place for handling this and they have the kids’ safety in mind. You stay safe and take care of yourselves!

    I love the way your pattern is looking! I’ve never worked with twisted yarn before. Now that the country seems to be slowly coming to a close, I should really be stocking up on yarn and get back to knitting! I diverted a little when I found my mom’s sewing machine, and was so entranced by how much faster the project comes together. But I definitely miss sitting down with my needles!

    Glad there is a plan in place for the schools! The uncertainty sometimes feels worse than the actual situation itself! Stay well!

    What a difference a day makes! They closed one school district east of the River (the Missouri divides the state in half) when a parent tested positive, also for two weeks. As of last night we are holding steady with just the one case here, so I’m feeling hopeful. I did ask for refills of DH’s meds since they all come from over seas.😳 We have two inhalers on reserve now, and I’m hoping I can get another of his expensive one early, so we are set through April. After that we are ready to hunker down.

    I didn’t say it specifically, but the new rendition of the sock looks perfect! 😍


  6. That’s great your school is so organized and that distant learning is possible these days. Our schools closed nationally from 6 pm yesterday. I’ve bought wool for simple socks and plan to give it a try since we’re all stuck at home. Stay well!

  7. The sock looks better. I’m impressed you have the gumption to tear it out and start again. Our schools in the city are closed for two weeks, but none of the suburbs are closed, so it is a hot mess here.

    • One of the school districts two towns away is closed until May. They’re a city with many students and they are doing whatever they can to keep people from spreading coronavirus. I suspect our time out of school will be extended if people don’t stay home.

    Same here. Schools are closed and they are watching some people in my county. Not my town, but county.

    My husband has been buying online; we just got a delivery of groceries from Target.
