Isn’t it funny how kids pick up on things? I was chatting with Andrew over IM this weekend, and he told me that someone in his class was knitting:
XXXXX (5:55:37 PM): she was making gloves
XXXXX (5:55:52 PM): she had that weird triangle thing going with the needles
XXXX (5:56:01 PM): so i thought it was a sock
XXXXX (5:56:06 PM): but then she put it around her wrist
XXXXX (5:56:20 PM): so i guess it was gloves or something
I thought it was cute that he knew the weird trangle thing going with the needles meant socks. He was puzzled why I thought it was cute – he said that he knew that socks were my knitting preference and so he’s seen it a million times. I just thought he never really noticed what I work on.
I read today on Knitters Review that you shouldn’t take pictures the same way over and over because blog readers will get bored….so I’m going to need to figure out new creative ways to take pictures. However, being that I still am feeling crappy, I’m going to bore you by showing you the same background….
I cast this on Saturday and finished it today – amazing, eh? Its Bearfoot – garter stitch rib or something like that. Great yarn – and it went really fast. But rather than casting on for the second, I went back to Ariann – I really want to finish it before the winter ends.
I have a new yarn shop I’m stalking – Mystical Creation Yarns. I haven’t bought anything (yet), but the yarn looks really nice and very reasonable prices. Anyone have experience with this store?
