And I just spent £29 on knitting books. But I really wanted them. One is about socks, two are about lace and the fourth… well, it’s called Naughty Needles. So I guess it’s not that bad, four books for under thirty pounds. Plus, free shipping! I always try to get the free shipping.
What else… well, the weekend’s essay extravaganza kinda fried my brain. But I now have two revised final papers. Yay me. Still have to write that last one. Urgh. I so don’t feel like it.
But yes, due to the brain fry-age, all I did yesterday was knit! (Like that’s anything new.) I finished my first ever toe-up sock. I made the Diamante sock pattern from Knitty.com with the Lisa Souza Sock! Merino (100% Superwash Merino) in the Lime&Violet colorway. It’s soooo pretty. And as I was showing off my beautiful new sock to people in my classes today, I got comments like: “Y’know, if my knitting was this even, it’d be all I’d do all day” and “You are a knitting machine.” So yay!
There will be pics, but right now I just don’t have the time to take them, load them onto my computer, make them suitable for the blog, upload them, create the page and do the links…
That takes some effort, y’see. And I have an essay to write. And another Diamante sock to knit.
