There are things worse than boring
My toe-up socks are coming out too big, too. At least I can measure my gauge and make a better guess for next time. (Oh, are you supposed to do that before you start?) Next time I'll use a piece of paper (a tool I seldom use unless it's a pattern print-out). But I might put them aside for a while in favor of Fetching or Dashing.
I need to work on seaming the Aran baby sweater for the Bustalong and knit a preemie sized beanie. I clearly need more knitting time.
On the way home today I'll stop and see if I can find some suitable buttons and really finish the Pea Pod sweaters - I washed them last night (machine wash warm, tumble dry low). I had irrational fears that they'd just come apart and I'd pull out big tangles of yarn. Thankfully, only one of them has 2 ends sticking out of the right side.
