Next by 7:45 p.m.
Then a break to answer some work e-mails that popped up and grab a snack. By 8:13 p.m. there were 2" and the leg section was done.
I turned the heel flap the wrong way and had to take a few rows out, then look up the SSK (slip-slip-knit) stitch,
and how to pick up stitches along an edge
since it's been a while since I knit my last little baby project.
Once the heel was done it was on to the toe.
And by 10:11 p.m. finishing off.
And voila! One done by 10:38 p.m. So, already that's almost 3 hours (with various interruptions) and the 2nd one took about that long too: twice the quoted time, but I need to brush up on my speed.
In any case, I liked this sweet card to go with it.
And always love gift wrapping, especially for something so very small and soft. It's nice to use a strand of the yarn for a preview of what's inside.
There are lots more projects in the book I want to try too: soft baskets (2 - 4 hours), spiral seat cushions (6 hours), socks (more than 8 hours) and more...maybe my time ratio will be a little better next time.
