Yesterday I spent the whole day curled up sporting a pair of chunky manufactured knit socks, which were a Christmas present from my mom four years ago, and plotting my next fall into multi-project syndrom. Yes, I have a pair of socks on the needles but do I remember where I left off last in the lace pattern, NO. So why not start another pair..a little less brain activity kind.

Blame it on the slight drop in temperature (especially in the morning hours) that has caused these fingers to demand to knit socks. I have only finished one pair of socks..but guilt is not welcome in this house. I live guilt-free in my wooly-covered life.

The victim of choice is Harris Tweed by Ali Green. This pattern looks best in solid yarns but I have chosen a nice multi of grey, brown, yellow, and orange(Lion Brand Sock Ease – Toffee). Mmm..stripes. I am making these for my DH in hopes to complete them by winter(?), along with the other projects that I’ve started. A pullover for a two year old and lots of knitted facial cloths. Oi, what’s a girl to do?

I have decided that listening to Lime and Violet podcasts is the only way to keep my sanity! Swoosh…off to knit and listen to the girls!

The weather changes on a whim from chilly rain to comfortable wind to miserable heat within twenty-four hours from each other. How is a knitter to make up their mind as to what project to toss into the All-Day-Bag? Should it be the chunky cotton shawl, the circular ribbed wool sweater, or a small project that can keep safe from moisture? This is where I the author plop down in my seat and sigh and throw my hands to the ceiling in distress! It has been such a ridiculous ordeal that I don’t have the desire to do anything but stare at the walls in hope that Reasoning would crawl back inside reclaiming her position. Bah! It is all out the door and no signs point to the return of such things.

For my birthday I “splurged” (in which I bought a slightly more costly wool than usual but nothing insane to break the bank) on some Cascades thick and thin yarn not knowing what exactly I was going to do with such a thing. One skein + logic n’ strategy = hat. Fibronacci numbers as an inspiration and began to write the pattern as I knitted along. So, here is the tale of my progess in rhyme.

On I cast the stitches there
In which the needles could hardly bare
From off the ends the wool did slide
Slip and slink from the left to right.

Quick I went now double fisted
To keep my stitches becoming twisted
Knit two, purl two a rib so snug
I clicked onward without a shrug

Thirteen, eight, five, three, two
One to one, now what to do?
