If I ever reach the point where I feel it is necessary to operate my keyboard with my feet so I can knit at the same time, would one of you please smack me really, really hard?
I think taking many quickie breaks from knitting to do things like operate a computer mouse or keyboard is one of the reasons that I don’t seem to suffer any wrist or hand pain from knitting. Change in repetitive motion. It’s a good thing.
Yes, I read while knitting, with the book propped open in front of me. But I stop knitting to turn every page as I read. No turning of the pages with my feet or any such nonsense for me.
Hey! I wore the DKNY lace sweater to work the other day. This photo was taken upon my return home, after a long and tiring day, so do cut me some slack.
I came home from work today and found in the mail this extremely cute card from Roseann:
Roseann, that was the high point of my day! Thanks!
New! New! New!
Lookie what I got the other day.
This is a Courtney Mini Tote from Moriah Ice Designs and it’s just about as cute as it can be. She will do custom designs for you, so you can configure your tote any way you like it, and pick from a number of fun fabrics. I specified that the handles be a certain length that is perfect for me to hang over my wrist and perfect they are.
This little tote is just right to hold a sock in progress and some other doodads.
Speaking of sock in progress, the second Crotalus Sock is progressing.
I’ll have the pair completed for tomorrow’s blog entry.
When you buy a sock yarn that comes all on one skein (instead of two skeins = one pair) how do you decide it is time to start sock number 2? and not have too much leftover yarn when you finish?
To take the guesswork out of knitting two socks from one skein, I split the skein into two balls. I described in detail how to do that in this blog post. I’ve been doing this for a while now and it works great for me!
Meanwhile back at the ranch, Lucy is chillin’
