Blah, blah, blog.

No, it's not that I've been spending that much time on Ravelry, but I haven't had that much to say.

Ravelry is very cool but I have to admit that my attention span for it is somewhat limited, so it's going to take me awhile to get photos of everything up. Also, I hate Flickr, which is required for posting photos there.

Saturday I was cramming my weekend chores into one day, so that on Sunday I could be all busy. Had a massage in the morning (I am still just barely holding it together with all the injuries I seem to have, but am improving) and then we saw Harry Potter in IMAX 3-D, which was very fun. We finished off the day with a dinner at Wildfire - they removed my favorite sandwich from the menu, which was disappointing, but I had an excellent chicken caesar salad, and we split some apple pie for dessert.

In case you think I have not been knitting - I royally screwed up the Bayerische. I didn't really understand the directions in the heel flap setup, so I just pressed on (*slaps self on forehead*). After picking up the stitches along the heel flap, discovered the pattern REALLY didn't make sense, and when I asked one of my co-knitters about this, she informed me that I had knit the heel flap in the wrong place in the pattern. The way this sock works is there are 4 different cable patterns on each side of the sock. There is a particular cable that is supposed to go down the front of the foot and the back of the heel. Well, the way I did the heel flap, that cable is nowhere near in the right place. So I need to decide if I don't care and want to leave it as-is, or if I want to frog the heel flap (eek) or tink the heel flap (ugh). The thought of frogging scares me because I'm afraid I would drop a stitch too far and lose the patterning it is supposed to have. I've decided not to touch it until the next KTog meeting, where I will hopefully get opinions, advice, and maybe even help if I'm lucky.

So in the meantime, I got this done:

Have I mentioned I love this colorway? I will be casting on for #2 tonight. I have never had a problem with Second Sock Syndrome for some reason (though I could see some coming on with Bayerische).

There, are you happy now? :)

You don't have to deal with Flickr forever. I know they are definitely planning to add more photo hosting options before it goes entirely public. Picassa was mentioned as well as another one who's name I've forgotten.

The finished sock is just gorgeous!

It seemed like none of the blogs I read had been updated in forever. So, I decided to nudge a few.

maybe we should both pretend we never started the sock "that shall not be named"
