I am, quite frankly, amazed that I’ve managed to do any knitting at all this week. Deciding to blow my Friday evening and knit at KnitSoc was a major contributor to this, although I am kinda regretting it now…ahh well. The maths is nearly finished…
The bluetit socks have been my main focus (easy, portable and technically a deadline before the scarf (oh my word don’t ask me about the scarf…)), although I have slowed down quite significantly on them due to stress related neck/right shoulder pain. I’m assuming stress related because otherwise I’ve done something really bad to to my neck/shoulder muscles and I really don’t want that. Either way, the best course of action is probably less stress and try not to use the muscles too much, especially when they get really sore. So less knitting. Hey ho.
But anyway, the first of the bluetit socks is nearly finished.
The heel is eye of the partridge, which I actaully really like the look of (although knitting it was really awkward- any tips on keeping tracking of which row it is???). There are small holes on either side of the heel flap though, which is somewhat annoying, but that’s the teething problems of being a test knitter I guess! I have a potential solution to try on the next sock. 🙂
