Perhaps I am having a mature moment of stick-to-itiveness, or maybe it's thoughts of Spring, gardens, and sprouting seeds distracting me from thoughts of knitting projects. For maybe the second time in my knitting life, I am only working on one knitting project at a time.
I like to start one sock, work it through the heel flap, then start the second one. I go back and forth like that to keep from getting SSS, and to keep the pattern in mind. I know how to knit two pair on one set of circs, but I don't like to do that when there is a pattern involved. I work the gusset through the decreases, then switch to the other one. I really hope I have better luck closing the toes on this pair ... I still wince when I put on the Interlochen Socks with the awful toes.
I have also been spinning madly.
The rust BFL, on a bed of unspun Golden Harvest BFL:
As I posted last week, I was home sick for a few days. For most of 6 days, as it turned out, and I had no desire to move off of my couch. I knitted, I spun, I spindled ... and after about day four, I grew tired of even that, but my head hurt too much to try to read or do crossword puzzles. So ... I started another hobby.
A few years ago I bought scrapbooking stuff, but lost interest very quickly. Luckily, I bought just enough to get a good start without having to run out to the store for more. It was just complicated enough to keep me occupied, but not so gripping that I felt like I would do this obsessively (as I do with knitting and spinning). I hope to record each of my handspun knitting projects, or my large projects such as sweaters, etc. So now I have record of my knitting projects on Ravelry, on this blog, photos in Flickr and Snapfish ... and now in an album. Redundant much?
Happy Fiber Arts Friday, everyone!
