A Knit Decision

Knitting in Oregon, with other stuff, too, such as crochet, cats, dogs, history, fashion, highly opiniated rants, reading, diabetes, church, life in general, etc. I like circular needles, prefer natural yarns, don't spin, choose small projects, and don't have any one favorite yarn store. I love them all.

Ribbing on Pink Socks

I've reached the ribbing on the pink socks. I've done two rounds, so I still have a while to go. I kept dropping stitches as I switched over to the ribbing. Strange, how such a simple, and fixable, mistake creeps up on one. Oh well. I was able to fix both of the cases. And I doubt you'll be able to

Sock Sensei Judy, when asked, how much ribbing to put on, replied wisely, "Always a little bit more."

They fit really, really well. What good socks. I can see why they become addicting. I already want to try one with an afterthought heel.

I ordered lots and lots of needles from the KnitPicks ladies. And just a little yarn.

I'll be coming down to Tangle or Lint or Naked Sheep for community knitting soon, I think. It is good for my soul to sit among others like me and knit.

Oh, and... We attended the Opera this week and, as opposed to last time, there was no unpleasant episode in the parking lot with a nasty driver in a car bearing a knitting bumpersticker. I can perhaps regain my belief that all or most knitters are truly nice people. Even when behind the wheel.

Or maybe she moved.

Or maybe she didn't like Opera.

I've been to the Naked Sheep knitting night, and it's really a nice bunch of people. Plan on going more frequently in the future.

Psst - are you going to the Yarn Harlot signing on Friday? Email me! kmayers@gmail.com
