The new sock yarn eventually told me what it wanted to be, and it’s coming along nicely, although my cable needle is practically the same size as the dpns. Being
picky finicky that way, 😉 I plan to reverse the cable turns on the 2nd sock. [Added note: I realized this was a little sketchy. Sock is worked on 68 sts, 18 rnds of rib, then beg at right edge, work first 20 sts of chart, work repeat twice = 68 sts. Apart from the pattern stitch, it’s my standard sock “recipe” from Ribbing-Plain & Fancy.]
We went to St. Louis yesterday, and saw some of the flooding on the Meramec River at Highways 21 and 141, where we crossed into St. Louis County. It’s not as bad there as in some other areas, though it will probably get worse as the water moves down toward the Mississippi. It certainly makes me really thankful that we live at the top of a hill!
