Crossing the border
Print O' The Wave longs to be freed from the confines of the 40" circular needle! Oh, the indignity.
Picking up over 700 stitches for the border was tedious in the extreme. It took me the better part of an afternoon. So far it looks like my math is working out, but I won't really know until I start knitting the main border.
There has been a little sock progress in the last week too. Thelonious has a heel, and one ankle sock is finished.
I had mentioned that I'm knitting the ankle socks with the leftovers from my Pomatomus. Since I had 50 grams left, I was pretty sure that I could get an entire pair of ankle socks, but I was mentally prepared to break into another skein if needed. Well, my scale tells me that 50 grams is more than enough to finish this pair. That's two pairs of socks from one skein of yarn. How can you beat that?
In other news, the Professor just got his new MacBook Pro, and he decided that since he got a new toy, it's only fair that I get a new toy too. So he surprised me with an iPod nano. Here it is posing with its older sibling. So cute! They seem to be great friends already.
