Knitting again

Posted by mousewrites on February 13, 2006

Well, I’m knitting again. Doc gave me the go ahead. The long dry spell is over!

And what am I knitting, you ask? (Ok, nobody will ask, because it’s been so long that the only people visiting my blog now are spambots and the very occasional googler. HI GOOGLER!) I am knitting socks!

Yes, the sock bug has bitten me right in my mousy rump. And yet, I hate dpns. Why? They make my widdle wrists hurt (whine whine whine) . So, how am I knitting socks? Why, with 2 circulars, of course!

I’m using Brown Sheep Wildfoote in the color brown sugar, and the basic pattern. I shortened the cuff (I can’t stand long cuff socks… and this first pair has to be for me, because I know I’m going to screw it up somehow,) to only two inches. It fits fine, so far.

Which I actually don’t like that much. Oh well. At the time, it was the most interesting yarn that Anacapa Fine Yarns had.

this weekend was fun. Saturday I watched my friend ‘perform’ in the Death match wrestling, complete with ‘blood’ and extreme prop abuse. Sunday there was a yarn swap over at Heather‘s house. (Check out her pictures of the event. Yes, I am funny looking.)

It was me, Heather, Sandy (who needs a blog), Beatriz of GaucheKnits, and Terri. I got rid of some stuff, and got 3 sweaters (one handknit by Heather!) , a whole bunch of yarn, and a few handbags. And I ate enough cheezy potatoes to kill an irishwoman. Which I am, so I should be dead now, yes?

Sock pitures coming up!
