The daily pork report has moved into the living room. This guy is a very recent acquisition – he is a shooting range target and is made of cast iron. Last month I was at an antique show and there he was. It is the original paint and in the second picture you can see the dents made from the shots. Initially I thought he was more of a target in a carnival type game – something that would use bb guns. Boar inspected him and has informed me that some of those dents are made from a small calibre gun. Boar knows these things from his days spent on his high school’s rifle team.And here is a sock progress shot. So far so good. As you can see I am knitting these on two circulars rather than the dpn’s the pattern calls for. This required only one adaptation which I got straight from Cara who got it straight from Cookie, the designer. When knitting these on two circs, you may encounter the direction to do a yarn over right at the beginning of a needle. Don’t do the yarn over in the traiditonal way – this will make the holes a bit too big. Simply pick up the yarn over on your next round and that will leave you with a more attractive pattern. The sock does appear alarmingly narrow although it is quite stretchy, so my cankles have hope!
