A few random things for a Wednesday

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.
