I have nothing better to do…

The Martian Death Crap II: Zombie Boogaloo has me on the couch still, looking a little blue around the edges. And since I called in sick to work, again, I am just gonna have to amuse myself in a non-athletic sort of way.


Thanks to my commenter in the last post who pointed out that it IS possible to pull out, reknit and regraft a toe.

A good excuse to watch more Battlestar Galactica.

Besides, it’s like, totally therapeutic.

or something.

halfway there

Didn’t take long.


And it means I can keep my new Fleece Artist socks for myself. Which I really wanted to do. Now to cast on #2. I am halfway to socky nirvana.

    Those socks look great. Good for you taking the time to re-do so you can keep them for yourself!

    Not only that, but I recently discovered that it’s not too hard to put in a lifeline after the fact, especially in stockinette. So if you ever get nervous about ripping back you can just thread some string through one side of each stitch. Presto!
