Wow! What a busy, fast week it has been! My husband’s birthday was last Saturday and we celebrated with gifts and a very nice Italian dinner out. On Sunday, we went to see a play titled “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy” with our good friends, one of whom also celebrated his birthday last week. We finished up Sunday evening with a delicious dinner of Roasted Beef Tenderloin, Port Wine Reduction, Cacio e Pepe, a fantastic Salad and Olive Bread. Carrot Cake was served for dessert and we had loads of yummy Cabernet Sauvignon.
Between birthday celebrations and work on my test knit, I did not accomplish as much as I had wished on my sock this past week. However, progress was made! In my last post, I was 15 rows into the foot of the sock. This week, I am at 42 rows! It’s starting to look more like a sock than a toe warmer 🙂
One thing I have noticed is that I am accidentally adding a stitch here and there. I think I may be unconsciously performing a GSR stitch when moving to the next needle. It’s nothing that can’t be fixed by knitting two stitches together; however I wish I would catch myself in the act to see if that’s what I’m doing. The sock currently measures 5 3/4 inches and needs to be at 8 1/2 inches before starting the heel. Hopefully, I’ll get there before next week!
And some food pics! The first two are from our dinner out on my husband’s birthday. The third is the meal my friend Yvonne and I made for the two birthday boys on Sunday.
