I've been working on the second Joseph's Coat Sock. The cuff is done and the leg is just about finished with less than ten rounds left. So it's rollin' along. And it looks pretty much like the cuff and leg on the first sock.
I need to be thinking about my next project. I'll stop for a bit on this sock after Saturday and finish my SIL's Poem's Socks. She and my BIL are coming in to celebrate her birthday. I'll have her try on the socks and hopefully I'll just have to do the toe decreases. I wouldn't mind if I have to knit a bit more on the foot or frog back some. I just hope I don't have frog them.
I'm thinking about casting on for another pair for Mr WK. The last two pair I knit for him I finished in just under a month. That way he'll start the colder part of the year with several pairs of warm hand knit wool socks. I bought extra yarn last December and January when I got the yarn for other socks so it'll be just a matter of which color and a pattern.
This past Sunday Mr WK shot his first 3-gun match. Everyone had a blast, literally [see video below]. He will be shooting a 3-gun again. There were five stages and 14 shooters. I didn't shoot well ... any guns, anyway. I wielded the camera. It was hot and sweaty and I think everyone fumbled at least 1 shotgun shell while reloading under pressure. It was all birdshot on this match. The first stage was the only stage that had all 3 guns in play. The second stage was carbine only. The third stage was shotgun only. The fourth stage was pistol and shotgun and the final stage was long distance carbine.
That was a lot of shotgunin'. Minimum shotgun rounds for the match was only 44. But Mr WK shot 77 rounds and that's probably about average. I'm going to be trying a lot of different gauges and shotguns in the coming months to see if this is something I want to do. We will get into reloading shotgun ammo simply to cut down on the recoil.
