In between working, pretending to do my taxes (still 5 days! 7, if you go to the following Monday!) helping Eric to recover from his long weekdays on his consulting job, and refusing to clean the house, I continue with my efforts to learn nålbinding.

The item that was to be my first sock refuses to turn into a tube. It now is of the size, and shape, of a yarmulke. So there's been a change of plan. I'm going to work on it until it's the size of a beanie (i.e., a yarmulke about twice as broad and deep). Then I'll finish it off with a row in a contrasting color, and I'll have my first project--a hat! We won't say anything about the quality of the stitching (I can do at least 8-10 perfectly gauged stitches without screwing something up), but it should be a usable hat by the time I'm done.

Then I can start trying to make a sock all over again, using my brand-new, perfectly Viking period bone nalbinding needle!
Mood:: 'optimistic' optimistic
