Catching Up

I am currently backed up against a number of deadlines, and as Murphy would have it, every time I open my inbox, there’s at least one message that requires some action and puts me further behind. I bet most of you can relate.

For example, I recently got a message that there was a typo in my last blog entry (dated around July 2) about the complete and corrected version of The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweater e-book now being available. Instead of correcting the error, I managed to delete the entire entry. (Here’s the link if you want to order a copy for immediate download). I finally gave up on trying recover it and was so fearful of deleting anything else that I’ve been hesitant to post another entry. Hence, the long gap since I last wrote.

But I have made some progress on the Terpander socks from Sock Knitting Master Class. I’m about halfway up the leg and plan to finish the first sock this weekend (really!).

When I announced that I was going to knit every pair of socks in the book, I expected to complete them all by the one-year anniversary of the book’s publication. Given that the anniversary is just a couple of weeks away and there are three more pairs (as well as the mate to this one) left to knit, you can be sure that this day will come and go without fanfare.

In the good news department, I’ve received an advance copy of the book version of The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. And in the really good news department, the slow boat from China docked and the shipment is due to arrive at Interweave on Monday (July 17), a couple of weeks ahead of schedule!

Just for the record, I do NOT plan to blog about knitting every sweater in that book!

  1. You’ve done really well to knit so many of the socks PLUS share your mods and tips with us. Your posts have been really helpful and I may knit some of the sock patterns that I had previously decided were “too hard”. Btw, can’t wait for the sweater book to arrive!

  2. Sending you positive vibes for your deadlines!

    (I looked for a cache of your July 2 post on the Wayback Machine website but could not find it. Let me see if it might be somewhere else if you want to retrieve it)

  3. Ordered your book in February – that really is a slow boat, but I’m eagerly awaiting dockage. If you’re not going to do every sweater, does that mean I have to? I’ll aim for baby sizes. Regards, Betty
