Knit in the New Year
Okay, so I've decided I don't want to necessarily bore you with my New Year's resolutions. Especially because it was four pages handwritten, two typed.
I do want to tell you I have started the second Thuja sock. Only on the toe though, because I ripped it out a couple of times. For some reason I just wasn't liking the way it looked, and once when I got all of the increases done and was about to start knitting around, I realized I'd forgotten a whole set of increases on one side. D'oh!
You know, I realized today, as I started the toe of Justin's second Thuja sock for the third time, I am somewhat of a sock knitting anomaly. I like using DPNs. I like knitting both socks one at a time (unless I'm doing endless rounds of stockinette). I love grafting sock toes. Magic-loop. Yep. I want to try extreme sock knitting, colorwork, and argyle. The only things I'm not fond of? Trying to knit flat socks (seaming? ew) and using two circs. Gimme sock yarn, tons and tons of it. All colors and brands. I whipped out the Hedera socks in (essentially) 10 days. Had it not been for all the craziness with the Thuja socks, they would have been finished in a week.
Slowly I'm working through all of my projects until the only one left is that top for my mom. *sigh* I will NOT cast on any more projects until it's complete. I suppose that should be a resolution too huh? lol
