Last time, I said I didn't know what "lace method" cast on was. The very kind and helpful Debi taught me how to do it in her comment. The River KAL hostess Jody also post a link to a tutorial page. Thanks both of you. BTW, Debi also has a very detailed tutorial on how to knit with beads without pre-threading the beads. If you are interested, hop over to her blog and check out the August 12 post.
As of the time when I was writing this post, I had finished the front of the Sirdar sweater ... YAY! I am sure you can all imagine how exciting a picture of a deep blue sweater front of 95% stocking stitch would be ... so I spare you of it!
I would not be able to post until Sunday. Tomorrow I would take a train ride to the big city (San Francisco) to meet a past student visiting here. I think I would knit the sleeves during the rides. I do look forward to the meeting as we haven't seen each other for a full 4 years! Besides, I think I would be able to get some good city shots for my photoblog. Then, tomorrow evening, Husband and I would drive down to Marina for another autocross on Saturday. But I am not as lucky as many of you who can knit while the husbands are driving during road trips. Husband is a very cautious person ... therefore, no knitting needles in the front seat. But still I would bring the sleeves along with me.
No progress on River, no progress on Bomber, so I can only end this post with pictures of Husband modelling his Rib Socks for you:
Note: He was watching some Fight-Club-style fighting show on TV ... AND the fighter he likes was on the verge of losing, so it was impossible to get a standing modelling shot. When I asked for a different pose, he gave me this:
But at least it shows the socks fit! LOL!
