I admit that I did not get any work done yesterday. Instead I moped around the house and procrastinated fearfully and then finished my 2nd pair of Monkey socks. But aren’t they cute?
And then I realized I don’t think I ever posted an FO photo of my first pair of Monkeys. They’re 1 repeat too short to fit me, so I’ll turn ’em into a gift (I gotta figure out exactly how much I can get out of a single skein of Socks That Rock – size 11 feet are not meant for this kind of game of derring-do without a nice method of splitting the skein evenly in half), but that’s fine. More Monkeys will come, I’m sure.
And earlier this week, after a day of commuting when I couldn’t stand to look at the same knitting I’d been knitting on transit both ways, I sat down and started in on that damn garter stitch. It has this lovely only-minimal-thought-required sort of quality, and it made me realize that were it not for the rapid yarn-eating pace of garter stitch, I’d surely do it more often. Anyhoo, I’m already on block 3 of the Moderne Log Cabin:
It’s going to be warm and cozy when it’s done. The trouble is, with every block the rows get longer and longer and so does the time it takes to complete a block, so…we’ll see how speedy it is all in due course. Or until start-itis striks again. Heh.
