some of these things - sometimes many of these things - i need an actual in-person hands-on demo of by a live person with some back-and-forth, not just a video. but, the closest LYS is now 45 miles away over a mountain pass. so that’s not happening.
i’m giving up on my chinese-american socks. disappointing, but between work and school and family health, my brain just can’t handle it right now. it’s too many steps and rows just to get the linen stitch right. i’ve been fighting the yarn and the needles, even my new fancy ones, the whole time. i’ll try incorporating the inverted heel concept and some other, easier, dense knit (maybe zig zag stockinette?) at a later date.
