Ugh. Been battling the computer and internets for hours, it seems like. I finished my second Geraldine this afternoon, wrote up the tutorial, and finished the pattern. Well, mostly. It just wouldn’t save as a PDF file – too big, too wonky, too something. So, it’s saved as a read only .DOC at the moment, until I can fix it:

ETA: Finally, finally, finally managed to get it saved as a PDF. The formatting is crap, and I apologize, but at least it’s in a universal format now.

Soooo… that’s that. Until I get my PDF maker to work, anyway.

Other news? Blinding headache. ‘Nother pair of socks on the needles already, called Colinette. Truly, I haven’t the faintest idea where these ideas are coming from and who named them.

Umm. Yeah. Tired, headache. Time to go veg. I hope somebody uses the pattern :)

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.

  1. Geraldine looks comfy lovely! And maybe the headaches are fuelin gyou rcreativity. You know, the neurons fire madly in aodd sequences and then creativity abounds. unfortunately, there is a price..headaches. My hubby would say it is the finger of god (or God) coming down and tapping you on the head. The tap transmits something, but there is some residual damage…

  2. Thank you so much for that crocheted eyelet cast off. That will be perfect to re-do the end of my Eagle’s Flight shorty socks! Truly, you are brilliant, and Geraldine is most beautiful.

  3. I have this in my Rav favorites and wanted so desperately to use it in April this year for a challenge, but the PDF link is broken or missing. Could you email me the pattern? If so I’m at my7kids at ymail dot com . Thanks! Nikki
