Today I have finished socks:
Pattern: None. My own. Simple 48 stitch CO. 3×1 ribbing for a while. Make swirls. Mirror swirls if you’re so inclined.
Yarn: Trekking XXL
Needles: 2.00mm US 0 DPNs
Started: October 17, 2008
Finished: February 4, 2009
I am so sick of this yarn. It’s being put into the bag of scraps, and we’ll see if I can bring myself to knit with this colorway ever again.
To inspire me to finish these socks, I did the second one with a short row heel. I think it turned out well (who am I kidding. This is my best short row heel ever. Let’s not discuss how it’s my second short row heel.)
I also ended up with the second one being a little bit shorter in the leg. My gauge was also tighter. Eh. Ladybug won’t care.
Today I joined Plurk:
I’m not much of a joiner. I don’t do knit-alongs, because there’s no way I could keep up. So why plurk? It’ll probably be good for me. Maybe help me open up or something. I dunno. If I fail at plurking, I can always quit.
Today I am wearing pajama pants:
Dude. You so did not want to be me last night. Pidge had some issues. I don’t know what they were, but they prevented her from sleeping for more than a couple hours at a time.
Today I reached the point in the Yarn Harlot’s archives where I started reading her blog:
Did that make sense? In an attempt to fill my pumping time with lots to read when google reader was empty, I started reading her archives from the beginning. (Does it freak you out that her first post had 19 comments? Crazy.) Also, my favorite post of hers that I had never read? The goat fiber one.
