As any parent knows, you don't want your kids to get too bored. A little boredom is fine...too much can lead to trouble. So I am knitting along on Kaethe's 2x2 ribbing and I think to myself, "Myself, this is kind of dull. What can you do to make it a little more interesting?"
Well, I briefly considered doing a little cabling detail but I was afraid that might pull the sock in too much and make it a little constricting. What I finally decided to do was to reverse the ribbing. So we have 4 1/2" of k2, p2 and now I've stitched to p2, k2. And after an inch or an inch and a half, I'll switch back again. Just to give the leg a little interest.
Then again, I may decide that it looks awful and rip it back. Who knows?
Rachel's roommate has moved out. She was supposed to wait a week after the mediation, to try to work things out, but she had her father call the college and push them to let her move out right away. (This got Mr. Pointy Sticks rather annoyed...he was all ready to call the college himself, but Rachel talked him out of it.)
The good side? Rachel may end up with a single for the rest of the semester at the least.
