Rhubarb Is Up!
I wrote a pattern last night for a mock-rib sock to be knit on a circular sock knitting machine. It's just a basic pattern, but there is a lack of literature for new knitters on CSMs. The manuals, both old and new, don't take a simple sock in step-wise manner from cast on to toe. The pattern is being checked by some knitters who have more experience than I on CSMs, and when it is deemed correct, I will post it here.
Trying to get used to the new cast. It leaves my left hand completely inflexible, while the bandaging I had before allowed me to move the hand a bit. In a way, I am more immobile now than I was a week ago - somewhat discouraging, although I will only have it on for 3 weeks. Things could be worse. I can't begin to tell you how many things I can't do because of it, but I will stop complaining. It doesn't do any good anyway!
