The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.

William Shakespeare

All’s Well That Ends Well

I am knitting and checking my math as fast as I can and still I see no way I can meet my own deadline of releasing the knitting pattern for my Autumn Lace Sock today. Dang and double dang it. You see, I have this major hang up about releasing a pattern that I have not thoroughly tested myself. It is very important to me that my patterns be accurate and easy to follow. I want knitters to enjoy themselves while knitting my patterns and I want them to love the projects when they finish them.

So while I am 99% sure that all size measurements for the Autumn Lace Sock are correct, I need to finish knitting the woman’s small to be sure. I want to see that the proportions are right. Especially the proportion of cuff length and the percentage of leg pattern that shows beneath the bottom of the cuff and comes before dividing for heel and instep. Although the numbers tell me that length and percentage will be fine, I need to see it in real life before me. I guess you could say I don’t trust numbers.

On the Rhinebeck front, I am still undecided about whether I will go.  If I felt good there would be no question that I would go, but the creeping crud I caught is still hanging in there. I keep thinking of all that beautiful yarn I’ll miss touching and I could almost cry. Sigh.

Time to get back to the sock.
