Started the next pair of watermelon socks, meaning I casted on and knitted 2 rows, nothing exciting enough to take a shot of. When the pattern looks like something and the thing looks like a sock leg, then I'll be motivated to take photos. Now the question is, what color reinforcing yarn shall I use with the yarn? FYI, I use fine cotton crochet thread as reinforcing yarn. I have green, rose, and natural. Yarn looks like this:
Another question: Does somebody know a technique to add reinforcing yarn on the soles only when knitting in the round? Seems to me there must be a way if people knitted padded sole socks, right? At $26 plus shipping form Canada for the skein, it's too expensive to contemplate holes in these future socks.
Big news of the day: DH has a job interview in a couple of hours! At a nearby public college-- to teach biology and lab. The chair of the department called last night, while DH was in synagogue for evening service. Nice man; told DH salary, hours, and everything when DH called back. Pay isn't great, it's for one course BUT DH keeps his state benefits (only 2 years until DH is eligible for full pension) and there's always the chance they ask him to teach a full-load. I'm hoping DH gets something to keep himself in the loop. Quite a few profs in his department at the med school will be retiring shortly; they'll need DH to take over the teaching load because they surely aren't hiring new faculty.
Today I work from home. Must go now and prepare for a teleconference with a client. Tempting it is to pick up those circular needles and knit my socks, but I refrain. Imagine the uproar if I were to drop a stitch while on the speaker phone. Words cannot describe.
