I am so screwed.
I don’t have any pics to share just now, but take my word for it – the first new kilt sock is done, and it’s lovely. I’m really happy with the way it’s turned out. I put it and the surviving member of the Knitting Olympics kilt hose on yesterday and the new one stayed up nicely while the old one slumped down around my ankles. Adding ribbing did wonders.
Ribbing: it’s not just for her pleasure anymore.

However, I am now in the pathetic position of having five days until Rhinebeck and I’ve only just finished turning the heel of the second sock. Can you say “Oh Crap”? I knew you could.
So, appropriate measures are being taken. I’m stocking up on caffeine and low-cal chocolate. I am going to get all of my trip preparations done tonight, so for the rest of the week I can spend every spare moment with needles in hand. I’ve put together a playlist for Shuffleupagus (my iPod Shuffle) that has the perfect blend of frenetic energy and brooding calm.
Here we go.
