Why, yes, it is. Alert the media.
And I even managed to start the second sleeve.
I plan to take said second sleeve on my quick trip to Philly this weekend. If tomorrow night’s train is late (as it appears to have been every day for the past week) I ought to get a lot of sleeve knitting done.
I will also bring the black violet sock yarn and my sock needles that are already conveniently stained purple from the first sock. In case of major train delays and I finish the sleeve (Get me. I said “finish the sleeve” — laugh along with me. I’m so amusing.), or in case of severe sleeve ennui, I can start the second sock.
I dunno if the stain on the needles will rub off on other yarn. I don’t think so — the dye on my fingers would not rub off on anything. It was only with copious scrubbing with water and some detergent that it came off. But still — I think I’ll keep these needles for darker yarn and use pristine needles for lighter colors.
As I mentioned above, I’ll be in Philadelphia on Saturday, visiting two yarn shops to sign books and chat with knitters:
I hope I’ll see some of you Philly area knitters!
Lucy says she’d love to come too, but she’s a homebody at heart.
