Self greenhair

More stress.


My nice, understanding boss gave me the day off. Now I have three whole days to prepare for Snake's arrival. I could use another week, though.

Frustration: I don't understand this knitting pattern. The "short-row yarn over" part. Thankfully I found a video on youtube that showed how to do short-row decreases, but I can't figure out how to alter it from there. I guess I need to see it to pick it up; just reading the words doesn't always tell me the trick.

So I still can't knit socks. Can anyone point me toward a simpler sock pattern?
