I am still in the doldrums. But now it is worse. I did finish the sleeve of the sweater I mentioned. I would show you a picture but it is hard to take a picture of a half finished sweater that doesn’t end up looking like a picture of a dead body. So never mind. You will just have to trust me. The problem now is I made some adjustments to the sleeves so they would actually fit without being painted on tight and now I have too many stitches for the prescribed decreases. This means I have to do math. And at the moment, I am really not in the mood.
The doldrums are worse now because I have added another project to the mix.
This is (part of) a sock. Specifically this is part of a Pointelle sock from knit. sock. love. by Cookie A. This is a book I should own, but I do not. So I checked it out of the library to knit these socks. The problem is, I still have about 20 rows of the leg to knit on this the first sock, and I can already tell they are going to be too small around for my big fat (kind people call them athletic) calves. This is discouraging because I have so enjoyed knitting it. Now I don’t know what to do and this is discouraging. So discouraging in fact that I may have to start a third project just to keep my spirits up.
