Stress knitting is the name of the game. I have been in this place before.
See that top sock, near the toe, where the spiral stops. That was where I was 2 years ago in terms of stress.
I am absolutely buzzing with nervous energy, and this has resulted in me trying to take it out on something. Well, that something in my Bohus.
I was trying to figure out if the yoke was big enough yet.after the short row shaping. According to the pattern, it is nearly there. According to me, I am a bit sceeved by the idea of having 14 in circumference sleeves. (Maybe silly since my arm is ~13" there) My gauge is a wee bit tight, like half a stitch per inch, but I did not wash the swatches, so frankly it is going to grow.
In other news, I received my swap package for the Wollmeise for All Seasons 4th Annual Summer Swap.
My partner, hates blue, so I was the best possible home for the Stella Polaris. Squeee! That is a cold dead hands skein. It is a night time shot, so you can't see the subtle variations in color. She also left me little messages in other languages, which I tried to translate in google translate. I got the gist of the phases. It was really wonderful of her, since I was not her swap partner. My partner apparently was too busy. Normally it isn't a one to one exchange, but I sent her some coral yarn, the silberdistal, a pattern of her choice, and coffee from a local roaster. Many people traded multi skeins, of which I have none remaining.
I finished a sock!
I have not started the next one. I just did a quick sanity check, Sock is 53.5g, the 2 remaining skeins are more than 60g a piece, so I am good to go for another sock, or 2. Yea!
On the fractal front, I made 3 this week.
That is all for now, wish me luck tomorrow!
