like i had said that i would, i had every intention of
posting up a pic of my first sock so far
two full days ago.
i kept thinking,
‘i’ll just finish up this one last repeat and then take the photo’
along with, ‘this will look so much more complete once i do this row…’
so you can see how the knitting happened
but the photo taking did not.
finally sat myself down right in the middle of the kitchen island last night
(as the light is better here than nearly anywhere else)
and snapped these couple of shots.
progress is definitely being made
(do you remember this pic?)
in an ‘i am the turtle,
not at all the hare’
kind of way.
‘slow’ taken from 86:15 in the psalms.
it must be at least two years ago now that i first heard about ‘magic loop’.
my stomach twitched, my knees knocked. and i walked away, fast.
i like dpns.
i know that i am
in the minority here,
but i do like them, sam-i-am.
so why change tools & take the leap into an abyss of unknown?
peer pressure, pure and simple.
two years of ‘you’ll like it’
& ‘there’s nothing to it’
& ‘go ahead, try it’
to get to me.
still, it was the idea of using size 0’s (for my skew socks) that was the final straw.
can you imagine my tremors at the thought of five size 0 dpns?
off the charts.
so i tasted this new to me technique
and boy am i loving it!
can’t remember now
why i waited at all.
