We have toes! All knit up, and grafted too. Not all finished, but not the last hour yet either!
Some of the ends have been worked in, but there are still a half dozen ends (per sock) to go. They aren't visible on the left, (because I've neatly tucked them under the foot), but they are there,(--see, on the right--) all the same. I'll finish weaving them in today, Then go to work on my secret socks.
I finally got around to photographing and documenting the progress on the secret socks. (What progress?—Just the cast on!)--This pair of secret socks, like the first pair, are designed for first or second time sock knitters—with lots of little details to make getting started easier.
I also have 2 swatches to knit up --and likely another post today, or maybe 2 tomorrow as a leap year bonus—The swatches are for Jessica—a newish knitter.
I am still reading The Red Queen—the first half of the book is sort of a prequel to Richard the III—one of my favorite pieces of Shakespeare, the second half starts with Act 1 —from a different perspective—and I suspect will end close to act 5. Already, in the book, the 2 princes have been killed. But there are still many pages to go!
Finally—I took in a comfy jumper--(and shortened it too) It's still loose and easy to wear—but it's now 6 inches narrower than it was! Gone from size 3X to plain old large. I know I am getting smaller; and how I carry the weight has shift, but the scale still keeps steady as a rock. No weight lost now, for what 3 weeks? Or is it an eternity? Well, at least I am able to keep off what I have lost. But that is not enough!
