I finished the second sleeve! I finished the second sleeve! Wheeee!
Now, on to the oh-so-alluring front pieces of Dew.
I cast on and knitted a couple of rows of the left side front on the train coming home. Doing a cable cast on and knitting fiddly lace on a bouncy-bouncy train? Probably not so smart. But what can I say? I like to live dangerously.
(By the way, some of you have asked about the source for Dew. I always list my source in my sidebar while I am working on a project , over on the right-hand side of the page (and then I list it on the project page when it is completed). There’s a link to Kim Hargreaves website in the sidebar, where you can purchase your very own kit for Dew!)
There were so many interesting comments to my question yesterday of where you knit — thanks for all your insights.
And after reading them, I realized that I have knitted during conference calls — but only during calls that don’t require too much participation on my part.
I would knit during stuff like homeowners meetings, and I do take my knitting to certain social gatherings — ones with close friends or family. If I were in a social situation where I didn’t know the other people there very well, I wouldn’t knit.
I think it should be made a law that knitters in the workplace should get knitting breaks, doncha think? And that every workplace should have a knitting break room. Hey, I work for Labor. Maybe I ought to get the ball rolling on that . . .
I find it interesting that so many of you knit in waiting rooms and in line (like at the post office). I almost never knit there, because I don’t like having to put my knitting away because of an external influence — like being called in for your dentist appointment. I like to be in control of my knitting time. I knit on the train, but I’m still in control, because I know when my stop is coming up and I can put my knitting away in a timely fashion.
Yeah, I know. I’m weird.
Neville the nano
Stephanie made me laugh out loud with this comment:
Your Nano is lovely. I’m seriously considering one – super cute – can you run with it or will it skip?
It’s not that her question was so funny. It’s the idea of me running that is funny.
Let’s just say that on a good day I have difficulty walking upright.
(According to the Apple website, the iPod nano is skip-free.)
But Neville the nano? I am so in love with this little guy! I am fighting the urge to knit him a little hoodie.
I don’t have a huge music collection, so what I currently have fits on Neville (he’s the 4GB model) with room for at least 500 more songs.
I’d love to put more music on him. But when I’ve got the iTunes music store open in front of me, I draw a blank — what songs did I want to buy?
Clearly, I need to start writing this stuff down!
To close, Lucy basking under her favorite lamp.
