I started this post yesterday. I've been so scattered.
To sum up the ramble that I'm about to delete: The Imp is much improved. He still has to finish his antibiotics, but is up and crazy as usual.
The rain finally stopped. It rained from at least Friday through Tuesday morning. It's so nice to see the sun again.
Emmaline is done! She took many days to dry and I think I've gotten most of the cat hair off of her (hey, all that frogging encourages mess). Here she is:
She's late to the party, but she'll be on her way soon.
In the meantime, I broke a rule. I broke the "I'll never knit a sock" rule. And I feel stupid because of it. Shortly after his illness became less scary, the Imp started to complain about the seams in his socks. I'll allow myself embarrassment and more for the comfort of my kids.
I've begun and frogged a ridiculous number of sock attempts. This one was knit using the Just Plain Socks pattern. Within two minutes of taking this picture, I frogged the sock. My Imp might grow into it in three years. I'm unwilling to wait that long. Also, I'm using a partial ball of sock yarn (because I'm not a sock yarn person) so I probably don't have enough. I probably ought to be using size 2 needles, too. Which I don't own. So yeah.
I'm almost done with The Death Relic. I need to review it and am unsure how. I have mixed things to say about it.
Linking up for the Yarn Along.
