Lucy is back home again, hopefully to stay. She is still quite a poorly little dog, but she doesn't need a drip any more. Looking after her is keeping us busy - feeding tiny little meals at hourly intervals is very time consuming.
There has actually been more knitting progress in one day than there was over the whole weekend. The Solstice Slip sock is past the heel now.
I do wish that I was better at judging the length of the foot with toe up socks. I pulled it back and added some length, if you recall, as the foot was too short. At the moment I am wondering if I have made it a little too long - perhaps I should have worked just one more pattern repeat instead of one and a half. I shall try it on again in a minute, and if it still seems too long then I shall pull it back for a second time. If it's worth doing at all, then it's worth doing properly.
Regarding the boxes - they are still with us, except that they are no longer in the way. We have put a half ceiling into the garage this weekend, with a loft ladder for access. This space is intended for general storage - and at the moment it is full of boxes. Getting them up there was a job and a half, I can tell you. There are 67 of them, plus a large quilted furniture protector, one of those things they wrap your sofa in before they put it in the lorry. Anyway, the removal company tell us that they will collect them on Friday morning without fail.
I seem to remember hearing this before.....
