So. . . remember how I mentioned I was going to work on my Birthday Socks at knit night?
Because wheelchair plus hot ash-fault is asking for hands stained with black goop, which is exactly what happened. My hands were covered in what looked like soot. It happens every summer, and I wasn't going to work on a relatively pale gift with goop on my hands that didn't come off easily.
(I didn't get pictures of my sooty hands, I didn't want to get that stuff on the camera!)
So, instead, I worked on these.
I got about half-way through the cable pattern before I was concerned that I might not have enough yarn with me to finish the pattern that night . . . and I'd forgotten my back of scrap yarn at home (I needed stitch markers to do the gusset increases).
So I came home early from knit night, but all is good anyway, since I came home to sushi for dinner. :D
