Attentive observers will note our thorough cat made certain to lay on each pile in turn.
Waving, Not Drowning calls for gingering weight. Since Cascade fixation is sport weight and has elastic I started with 56 stitches. The stitch pattern is quite elastic so the sock was too large. Furthermore, the colors were not lining up well.
Tried again casting on 48 stitches and that is the sweet spot. The pattern works better on two circa than it did at 56 stitches. The yarn stripes at this size rather than flashes. Size is very similar to a medium sized sock in fingering weight.
Very fast knit. Knit cuff, leg, heel, heel turn and gusset in one long day. I started on way to airport knit through the two hours on tarmac during the engine check and then flight to Tokyo, bus ride to YCAT. Very satisfying to have something to show for the day.
Knit a bit during the conference today as well.
When we arrived home from work we were petting the cats while they did their best to convince us to feed them tuna. I think everyone was surprised when Ella jumped into the coffee table despite Batu already being up there. I do not know if Ella knew she was there. In any case, Ella stayed there looking very submissive. Batu stayed nearly frozen until Rlla jumped down. Through it all we told them how wonderful they both were.
Kent and I took a lovely bike ride out to the reservoir. We went a bit earlier so it was cooler. It was also quite windy for Singapore.
