Perhaps Lumpy is reflecting on the appalling manner in which she managed to pick up the stitches along the heel flap of her second ever sock?
"Damn, that will take some tinking," Lumpy says out loud.
The smile suddenly vanishes from Chim-Chim's face.
It seems that the thought of tinking back 3-4 rows of 64 stitches on 2.5mm dpns has caused Lumpy's hand to clench involuntarily, forming a death grip on a rather sensitive area.
"Ooh, well done darling," chortles Lumpy," Quelle Erqsome did suggest solemn and aloof".
Lumpy wasn't sure but Chim-Chim may have muttered something, quietly and through gritted teeth, about needing his balls back.
Notes: clearly no Fellas were injured in the taking of these photographs as this woman is not in the filthy habit of public manhandling but heck, why let the truth get in the way of a good eyeliner moustache and an awful heel flap?!
I have tinked, I have redone and I think it looks better but I have been warned by a sock pro friend that I caught up with at the Twisted Stitch, Knit and Stitch event on Sunday that my heel is not square. As soon as I am a few rows away from the stitch pick up, I will try it on to see.
Hmm, what's the bet that could be more red sock tinking in my future?!
