My Sock. MINE!

This is why I didn't cast on for the Strikke-along yesterday. First sock is finished. Worked the toe while watching what seemed to be Dead Baby night on Meerkat Manor. I'm going to let it sit mateless for a while because taking a bajillion pictures trying to get one that was almost worth posting made me cranky at it. (Plus now that I see it, it's a little busy, don't you think?) Besides, I need to make sure my notes make sense when creating the second sock. And I'm still flummoxed by the thought of writing this thing up. Charts? Row by row? I used my row counter till row 88, does that information need to be included? If I write my instructions using modular arithmetic, will that freak people out? The mirrored cable thing makes it complicated. Ergh.

I'm going to let this go for a minute and see if there's some way of encoding a finite field in a big cable. Have a good one.

I worked on my sock today while watching meerkat manor and FLOWER DIED!!! I cried into my panda cotton a little bit.

I know! I thought that they'd kill that Zappa kid Axl or that the snake'd get Flower's pups, but no, it got her.

We'd seen the Len and Squiggy story earlier and Rocket Dog lost a premature baby in the next episode, so it was a bad night for the meerkats all around.

OMG I *love* that sock. I will totally help you write it up if you want. Pretty sure I owe you!
