I have been neglecting this hat in favor of Socks. I’m sorry, Hat. Do you forgive me?I need to finish you so that I can wear you tomorrow. Please be nice and let me finish you fast. I’m going to alter your pattern a teense so I can get it done more quickly. Remember, I love you.
Uh huh. I have done went off the deep end with this. I don’t know what it is lately with my knitting. I get into a funk and then I lose steam. As if nothing keeps my interest for long. I’ve been here, done this. I’ll beat it.
Others have said the nylon cuts their hands, even if they pre-draft it. I’m fortunate not to have that problem. But I realize they might be using wheels which calls for a faster drafting technique than what I do with a spindle.. Hmmm. Must remember if I ever spin nylon with a wheel to use gloves for protection.
The pattern calls for DPNs but you know how I work it: on the loop! So far, so addictive! And I got a tip for you: need a small ‘needle’ for cabling in a pinch? Use a straightened out paper clip(ThangQ Karen for this tip!) or the straight half of a bobby pin.
After the socks are done I will choose a color and dye them whole. Hubby’s socks will stay this color.
Well that’s it for now, gotta get ready for you-know-where..
1)Dark towels(the ladies I’m riding with know why)
2)Spinning stuff(Nylon web and my trusty home made spindle!)
3)knitting projects(small ones; gonna finish up Diamante and work on F&S)
4)My mind-blowing heavy-traffic wit.(Pick a LANE MF-er, Pick a LANE!)
And just because she’s too cute, I leave you with Ms. ‘spy-a-man’:
