the pensky file

i started back at work on the t-word* yesterday. i havent decided on a final title - i knew someone who called hers Fred until it was finished - so yesterday mine became known as The Pensky File:

for those of you watched seinfeld you will know that this means i now have a very well organised t-word.

seriously, i read over it and am pretty happy with where its at and with what i still have to do. it feels manageable, even doable.

but i have been out of the loop for a while with the book and there is some reading i need to catch up on. these are on the agenda for today:

just a few light pieces.

on a more interesting front, the bendi/patonyle sock is coming along, i have turned the heel using bendi:

it knits up nicely, especially on these fabulous knitpicks, but it was very hard to pick up and knit, firstly cos its solid black, and secondly cos its a bit strandy, if you know what i mean. i am still experimenting with methods for getting rid of ladders, which threw my rounds out a bit because i dont usually use a marker for socks but i am going to have to in future.

and i am bored with stocking stitch socks and want to do something with a pattern in it now. monkeys, or leaves, or fake cables or something.

anyway, back to the pensky file.

* t-word: new descriptor, substitute for the thing that can not be named.

Pink Pensky File - lovely. Didn't watch Seinfeld so don't get the reference.

Love the sock. Think of st st as meditative, not boring and can be done while reading articles. :)

Glad the t-word is looking good and making progress - just think, one day it WILL be done! Happy days!

The sock is looking very noice - easy no-brainer knitting at this point :)
