So there I was knitting on my very pretty Aqua Vanilla socks (this was yesterday); I had been working on them for a few days and I was very proud of my progress - I even managed to pick up my gusset stitches neatly:
Then last night disaster struck; one of my beautiful knit pro needles snapped - the needle that was holding the instep stitches. I could have cried, stitches started slipping and the whole sock was a mess:
Sadly some of the stitches unravelled several rows down; and I've never actually fixed a piece of knitting - so I decided I would wait for a few days and then rip back to my lifelines:
Thankfully at some point last night I felt brave enough to have a look at a tutorial on you tube about picking up stitches. And it gave it a go - and guess what? It actually worked - I fixed my first sock. I actually still feel really proud of this, it worked pretty well. I went to bed very happy last night. I'm hoping to get my sock finished in the next day or so. So I shall have to move straight on with sock 2, I don't want to get second sock syndrome.
Lastly my beautiful boys went back to school this morning so I had to share this gorgeous picture of them this morning, I am definitely feeling like a proud mummy this morning:
Today's plan's include getting back to my Wii fit, going to my reading group and definitely knitting!!! Sounds like my kind of day. What are you working on just now? I'm playing along with Tami and Ginny as always.
Have a knitty Wednesday!!!
