Do you like to listen to music while you knit? Or watch tv? Or how about knitting in silence, or while you chat? I love all of the above. However, I do find it difficult to have distractions sometimes. Distractions while knitting=breeding ground for mistakes. Noodling around the city I’ve seen people knitting and walking! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? I can barely look at a person while I knit, let alone be in motion. I was walking to the subway yesterday and I saw a woman chatting with someone and she was knitting with one hand, her yarn squeezed under that same arm, not even taking a peek at her work. And she was fast! Sometimes people amaze me.
I just always find it curious what people do while they knit. I love listening to music, and serially watching tv shows. I can crank out a season in a day or two… HA..so sad.
I’ve been working on a pair of socks for my friend Giorgia, and I’ve been watching Once Upon a Time. I’m obsessed with this show! It’s so cheesy and pretty lame BUT I LOVE IT. I love the fantasy and bad special effects. 🙂 I highly recommend it if you’re a sucker for fantasy, like myself.
I’m also very much adoring the yarn she picked out! It’s Knitpicks Tweed Stroll sock yarn in Autumn. This yarn is so cute and soft. Uhhm and also affordable! YEYUH. I can’t wait to give these to her. I’ve only been making them for WAY too long. She also has another pair in a different color way a coming her way. Second sock on the needles, heel done. Home stretch now.I’ve had quite the time with these particular socks. They are so easy peasy, but I had to rip out the first sock about 4 times. I even snapped a needle. But in the process I realized you can buy shorter needles and I like them so so so much better. They are a lot easier to work with. So if you find that longer needles annoy the snot out of you try shorter ones. I found some Clover ones that are great.
I also purchased some circular dpn’s. I want to try toe up socks on circs. I see everyone trying it and it makes me jealous! It looks so much fun and everyone raves. So how hard can it be? Does anyone know a good tutorial???For those of you out there who also want to try circs for socks, I’ll be reporting on how it goes. 🙂 Oh and here’s some yarn porn, just because.
The weekend is near! Everyone enjoy the rest of your week.
