Anti-knucks?


Knucks are fingerless gloves - they cover your knuckles, get it?

These, however, only cover fingertips. What they are, of course, are the toes of 2-at-a-time Tangled up in blue socks. I'm finally out of the toe increase section and into the true ribbed foot portion. 

I've been dividing up my knitting time between the socks and my old Brown Aran Sweater project.


It never photographs well - but I am on the underarm and chest portion. I'm on the fence as to whether I should rip it out and start again. I originally started this with combination knitting and I just don't like the way the fabric lies.
I may start another bottom portion and see which one I like better. One big problem is that the yarn is so dark that I can only knit on it during the day!

This week has been Project Week at Youngest Daughter's school and she has been building a balsa wood bridge with a partner. Once the first one was built, they took it to school and smashed it! All for science, of course. 


Now, they are on bridge #2. I think this whole week has been fueled by Mountain Dew and gallons of ice tea!

"Drs. Stanley and Livingstone I presume?'

As for the Saturday Seven, sad to say, I didn't photograph it. Youngest Child's outgrown socks, polo shirts and sport shorts. Off to the rummage sale!

I remember the balsa wood bridge project. The boys loved it.

2 at a time, toe-up is the only way to go when doing socks. Love it! I have 2 pairs underway now. I really should do some knit blogging.
