I haven't posted here much because I haven't been knitting much. Once Dames rehearsals started I pretty much stopped knitting.
But I'm back and with a vengeance because I've got to get those Sockapal000za socks all knitted up. I had bought yarn and started knitting with it, but discovered that instead of being fingering weight it was sport weight and I just could NOT get behind it. It wasn't knitting up in a way I liked at all. So I frogged that and finally bought new yarn a week ago and I've just turned the heel of sock one. I'm about three quarters of the way through the instep/gusset decreases. I picked the Retro Rib pattern out of an old Interweave Knits. I think Winter '04. It's a fairly simple pattern; just eight stitches and four rounds per pattern reapeat. What's nice about it is that it's easy to memorize the pattern and it's just challenging enough to keep me from getting bored (though "challenging" is probably not the right word), but remaining simple enough that I can while on the bus/watching tv/half asleep/mildy inebriated without screwing it up. So yay. I'll probably have it finished by the end of tomorrow, or Monday night at the latest, so that's good. I'd really planned on having the socks finished by now, but oh well. So long as they get done by May 2. That's the important thing.
Anyway, it's dinner time and there's a serious rumbly in my tumbly. I'll check in later. Bye!
