Friends shouldn't let friends knit hungover

so where were you lot at 5 this morning when I thought it would be a grand thing to finish the heel of my Trekking XXL sock?

This is the result of too much red wine last night and a decision to turn the heel after picking up the gusset stitches. Seriously stunted.

Serves me right, I thought I could sneak the sock in instead of knitting my Row a Day Challenge project.

M1K1 and TSS, both of whom should know better, set themselves the challenge of knitting at least one row a day on currently stalled projects. I thought it might be a way to get my arse into gear over my SIL's birthday scarf. Yep it was her birthday last month but they were away at the time and I had two other family birthdays that week and Mum was sick and Dad was sick and the dog ate my homework and I really hate knitting the track yarn (Moda Vera Salsa) even though it looks pretty.


Here it is, about 2/3 done. Probably should have it done for the Mother's Day lunch at her place tomorrow. *sigh*

That is one interesting heel you've got going on there. A row a day doesn't sound to onerous. I am trying to make myself finish a pair of socks with an entrelac cuff and I hate them. It is a pain but my daughter loves them and so they will be finished. One row of squares.

That would be a great heel just as long as your foot was shaped that way!

Liek the row a day idea - and as for knitting hungover - well, gosh I've just made some of my absolutely bestest decisions in that state! (and if you believe that I've got a great deal for you on the Harbour Bridge!)

In some cases you could say "well it will fit someone". However, I don't think that this is one of those cases.

Snort! That's funny!

Live and learn. I finished a sock at 12:40 am this morning after a few glasses of wine! It just takes practice!

woops! Is this better or worse than starting the toe decreases at the gusset?

Oh, bad luck with the sock. I unravelled half a sock yesterday, perhaps we need a drink AFTER the event as well!!!
