- Open cupboard
- Realise how much there is to do
- Put small item in discarded Waitrose bag (because they are stronger and better quality)
- Wipe exposed inch of surface in desultory manner
- Make nice cup of tea
- Read Living Etc and feel despair rising within like an overyeasted loaf.
I myself am knitting a sock.
|Admire those gusset decreases|
I always knit socks the same way. This is because I am not very adventurous, but also because I see them as utility items and I know this way produces a good, serviceable sock that I will be comfortable ambling about in. Also I really love knitting with bamboo double pins, I find it excessively relaxing. (Odd? Moi?). These are knit on 2.5mm needles although I am wondering if I should have used 2.25 (wouldn't you think I'd write it down instead of trusting my memory?). I am using Regia Kaffe Fassett yarn and I cast on with a knitting-on cast on:
|I don't know how to do the old norwegian cast on, I am rubbish|
Where do you stand on the whole sock issue?
