What's up

I figured I should finish a project once in a while, so I picked up my sock and knit the toe. I was pleased that I would have such a snappy pair of striped socks and was already planning the charming photos I would take of the pair. That's until I noticed that I'm an idiot.

toe fuck up

This is the top of the sock. Looks ok, right? Well, this is the bottom:

toe fuck up

I forgot to redistribute the stitches so my decreases are really poorly placed. The top of the toe curls in and the decreases on the bottom of the toe will suck to walk on. Don't even get me started on the impossibility of grafting the mofo shut. I'll just rip the sucker back.

At least I have new yarn.


It's Valley Yarns Berkshire (obviously) in Navy. I've got ten more of its bretheren chilling in my office. Together they will join forces and become a sweater for little ol' me. Well, that is after I finish the three other sweaters I've started in the last year. I'll get around to it.

In other news, a local Chicago man made brioche while under the influence of alcohol.


And it was good.

Ow! Bummer. I presume you made the Brioche.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who is ambushed by idiocy every now an then.

Still, brioche under the influence is a skill to be cultivated. Enjoy!
