With the closing date on the looming, I feel like I’ve barely had to time stop to breathe. There have been emails to answers, calls to make, and never-ending papers to sign. When I cast on for the caiman socks, I didn’t think I’d get very far on them.
But then I had an hour or so waiting for a new exhaust to be put on old Dory
Thankfully it was a lovely day, because with everything still in lock down, I couldn’t wait in their waiting area (it was already full). I found a nice patch of grass under their sign and stitched away.
Then I had an hour wait at the hospital to see a specialist.
(Don’t worry, it’s nothing serious, just an ongoing issue that is being managed). Because of the lockdown, you text/call when you get there to let them know you’ve arrived. Then they text/call you to let you know when the doctor is actually ready to see you, so they don’t have a pile of people in the waiting room, all breathing the same air.
Then a few nights of stitching here and there and….
A finished first sock! And I absolutely love how it worked up. I used my favourite formula for man socks – One-one rib for the cuff for 10 rows, three-one rib for the leg, and plain stockinette for the foot.
The other one is already underway. I hope I don’t need anymore work on my car, or visits to the doctor, but with a little luck, I can finish this pair in no time!
