Not inside out but certainly round and round.
I wanted to knit a pair of socks, patterned but not too much. I went through my folder of sock patterns and nothing called out to me.
I turned to ravelry, freebies of course, but yet again nothing was grabbing me.
AHA, I thought, I will copy what lots of pattern "designers" do. I pulled my stitch dictionaries out and browsed. I found a 12 stitch 16 row panel that just said " I am perfect for Francesca".Trouble was this was written to be knitted flat and bottom up. I knit my socks in the round and top down ( do intend to try toe up at some point).
So, I cast on and joined and happily knitted 20 rows K1 P1 rib then embarked on the pattern. I had to start on the last row and work my way backwards and translate the wrong side rows.There are some twisted stitches which all had to be reversed, brain ache!!
But, it is looking good so far and I have started on the 3rd pattern repeat and love it so much that it will be used in a sweater pattern soon.
Once the pair is finished I will share them, and the amended pattern, then any of you sock knitters can have a play without the brain ache.
My eldest grandson has a broken leg, both Tibia and Fibula, and he is plastered from foot to mid thigh. He is a very active boy so I anticipate lots of "I'm BORED" and "I'm fed up" quite soon. We will be looking for some new Lego for him and a few books. The SO has dentist on Tuesday so we hope to go over on Wednesday.
It is his birthday in May and we had planned to look for a sturdy football goal set, the last one was very flimsy and died within days.
Of course that will not happen, rubbing salt into the wound and so on.
I watched the latest episode of The Bakery Bears podcast this morning, Kay made a steamed Spotted Dick. I told the SO and we are having one tomorrow, I will use vegetable suet and take a large slice round to W. I will be breaking with tradition and using raisins, chopped stem ginger and some ground ginger, I will be putting some of the ginger syrup in the bottom of the basin.
It has been a foul day here, I woke to torrential rain which died down to a persistent drizzle, the mountain has been veiled all day.
I did manage to get Rufus and Ben out this afternoon for a while, they were not too keen but we all needed the air.
I have Firefly recording on the TV, I never saw all the episodes the first time round so will enjoy watching while I knit.
Now I need to get the kettle on for a brew, the veg are chopped and sweated off for an Impossible Quiche, I do like a one pot wonder and all it will need is a squirt of ketchup, maybe a little salad.
