[Ravelry FO] Summer socks

Stitch pattern from a free pattern from Wendy D Johnson (Finer PeaceSocks) and the Gusset Heel heel design from her “Socks from the Toe Up” book.

Starting again with the next larger needle. Too tight around my foot on 2 mm.

The cuff rib I used over the 36 st of each side was:
P, K4, P2, K4, P2, K4, P2, K4, P2, K4, P2, K4, P
…which fits well with the main pattern.

30 Days of Creativity: Day 5

Having put that cuddly toy project into hibernation on Ravelry yesterday, I have actually made some progress with it today, as well as with the latest pair of socks.

Still needing to sleep a lot today; weather-head and eye-pain, also from the weather/pressure.

May add photos to this post later but it will likely be dark before I wake up again. #nap #cocodamol

ETA: I also wrote a poem and asked for writing prompts!

If you liked this and would like to encourage me to do this more often, you could add something to the tip-jar (donate button) which would help us out a lot. Thank you for reading!




mole-think, writing, write, mole-write

My writerbrain wakes up as I lie down to sleep

A brain-dump free-verse poem that fell out of my head/pen as I laid down for a nap:

Today the snakes
in my ears have evolved
into steam escaping
in panic from
a pressure cooker valve.

Just add earplugs
for an instant
and personal
white noise generator.

The barometric pressure
changes again
and my eyes and brain
scream in harmony
with my ears.


Yeah, so, most of my poetry seems to be navel gazing. Maybe if someone leaves me a prompt here in the comments I can write about that instead? I have never tried to do that but would like to give it a try!
