I got my new Lazy Daisy socks to wear. The only modifications I made were to cast on 64 sts for the picot cuff and reduce to 55 sts for the leg (to prevent the lace from bagging) and to work a sl st heel. The socks just cover the ankle bone – if I knit these socks again, I think I'd work one more pattern repeat for a slightly taller anklet.
And I got a new motivation to reduce my carbon footprint. This computer model shows some possible paths of the oil spilling from the Deepwater Horizon, running from the April 20 start of the disaster through August when the relief wells are projected to be complete. It shows what could happen to the oil that will already be in the water regardless of the success (or failure) of the relief wells.
We got to find ways to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels.
I'll be snapping photos of the journey for the LGRAB Summer Games and also knitting in public at the meeting – see you on the other side.
