Thanks for all your well wishes - the old gut is settling down a bit now I think. It's knocked me around a bit (I could've killed for a good nap or a sleep in today).
Well I've been doing two socks on one circ until today. Then I suddenly realised a problem. The pattern on the Elfine's on the cuff means that I have to swap stitches from one needle to the other. The stitches travel a bit. I can't swap stitches from needle to needle on the middle stitches where there are no two needle ends (this isn't making much sense, but trust me that the addis have a very strong cord and I can't make it disappear to get the stitches off and onto the other needle and using another holding needle seems dumb).
So say goodbye to each other my lovelies! Ne'er again will ye snuggle toge'er on the needle!
Here they are on my desk at work, the only place I can get daylight shots of my knitting now unless it is the weekend and the weather is ok. Enjoy your last dance together socks! You'll have to wait until you are finished before you dance together again.
Now I have cruelly ripped them apart onto separate circs. O! Woe! Alas!
Here's the reason why I am not getting daylight shots. I was a bit late getting to the station today and look what happened:
yep, the sun rose as I waited for a train.
Then this happened whilst I was trying to get home:
Umm, that would be sunset then. We are getting some really grand susnet when there are breaks in the clouds. Sorta makes up for the days when it is nasty and grey (yep it really does rain in the land of Neighbours).
