so, what's the best project to carry around, just incase there IS knitting time? .... well, a sock, of course!
i was so pleased with my last panda sockens, that i decided that perhaps summer sockens were a good idea. so, i cast on with some stashed yarn, and went for a very plain sock (as the yarn was quite complex, colorwise).
it has been some seriously slooooow knitting. perhaps because i rushed in too soon with something i had done before (ie: same yarn!) ?!
but, it does allow me to do other things while i knit (ie: watch movies!).
speaking of which, i received i am legend (via netflix) almost a week ago, and finally made the time to watch it, not so long ago. as it turns out, i have become a wussy. apparently, i cannot watch a scary film by myself, after dark. how pitiful is that?!
so, the first night i watched about 55 minutes, 'til i realized that my sleep would be compromised (i can fall asleep, but i have trouble staying asleep). i hit stop. went to bed with a book and "happy thoughts". the next day, i put the movie back on to finish, while it was still daylight.
great movie! love will smith! can't believe he didn't get an oscar! .... and i didn't miss a stitch ....
cpy's panda cotton in nasturiums, 64 sts on 2.25mm needles. my gauge feels a wee bit tighter than usual, probably due to the elastic nature of this yarn.
for the picot top, i did a crochet provisional cast on, then knitted 8 rounds of the panda cotton, did the eyelet row, then 8 more rounds of stockinette, then joined together on the 9th round.
i figured if i was going "plain" i could at least go "girly".
