Second Sock Done

Last night I finished up my second Terra Incognita sock! As you can see, I was able to get it modeled by something big and blond. Lest you think he's a well behaved, well trained puppy, as soon as I snapped this picture, he jumped up, tried to grab the sock (which I got to first), ran in circles and started barking at me. I'm guessing sock modeling isn't part of his contract. Since I had already gotten the picture, he can fuss all he wants. Bwah ha ha!

Yesterday Samantha of the Comments (probably not the name on her driver's liscense) asked if I could give details about how I knit two things (sleeves, cardi fronts, that kind of thing) at once while knitting them flat. That sounded like a great idea for a post, so I will do a little tutorial on that for tomorrow. Clearly, I will not be using the big, blond model who is feeling sassy today!

Aren't all models temperamental? Looking forward to the tutorial, as I can envision many 'issues' this might help in my own projects.

At least your well trained dog didn't get a hold of your sock. My two "un-well trained" dogs made swiss cheese with a sock this morning. Luckily it was a plain gym sock not a hand knit one!

I like the color of that sock-modeled so sweetly by the blond.

Perhaps I could hire you to knit for me in Sock Wars III. I am awaiting delivery of tofutsies sometime soon in order to swatch and prepare for battle.

I am using your tip on knitting two sleeves at once to the cardi I've been plugging along at. I'll start the sleeves this weekend as I want to wear this on vacay this month. I love your tips. Thanks.

Rudee-definitely not the name on my license.

ps...I just bought these patterns. Looks like the sweater just went on the back burner.

But wouldn't it be so cool if "of the Comments" WAS my last name?! Ha!

Thanks so much for this! I'm very excited to know how to do this for my next cardigan.

I have a feeling that if I'd just spent some more time puzzling the placement on the needle of my left and right fronts, I would have figured it out, but after a 4-hour drive home from New Jersey, I just wanted to produce something. I'll be finishing up the left front tonight.

Ha ha! It's hard when the model wants to eat the clothing. Can you do the sunny spot during a nap trick like you do with the kitty?

I'm laughing because that sounds exactly like what my golden would do!
