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? :)
