I know this doesn’t look like much. And it surely doesn’t look like a sock. But it will be eventually, I hope.
Over the weekend when I wasn’t distracting myself from the craziness that is the news and the togetherness that is time with my family I knit. I even crocheted. I know it’s like the world is spinning backwards or something. I happily finished the heel which turned out as nicely as I could hope. I then moved on to the next instruction which involved a provisional cast on. I was going to try doing a knit one but the pattern included a link to Lucy Neatby’s provisional crochet cast on so I went to take a look. It’s a great video for a visual learner like me. It was clear and had just enough words to bring me into the crochet provisional cast on cult. Next time you have to do provisional cast on give it a go. You’ll be a convert too.
Anyway once I had the full compliment of stitches on my long circular needle it dawned on me that this was a perfect time to go back to the double pointed needles that I prefer. I’ve got a few rows of the instep done and should hit the foot before too long. From there it’s back up to the instep to work north towards the cuff. This unconventional construction is crazy. Just like what’s going on in the outside world.
