Some people sing in the shower, some people say they have the best ideas in the shower… I think about things while in the shower.
All kinds of things. Absolutely unrelated things.
One of them -as you might have guessed- is knitting.
So the other day I was taking a shower and I thought about sock knitting. I came up with the idea to knit socks on straight needles. I was thrilled! OMG! Absolutely radical!!!
So the minute I was done, I ran and departed my newest stroke of genius to my peeps on twitter… then someone told me: That’s the normal way to knit socks in England! Always have done them that way… BUMMER! LOL
So much for me “inventing” a revolutionary new way of knitting socks!!! ROFL
The way I figured it out, it works though and I might just do it for the fun of it…
(and maybe make a little tutorial as well for all of you, sweet readers. Even if you already know how to do it. Humor me LOL)
In other sock knitting news: the September socks for #12 socks on twitter are done and I cast on for the next pair. I wanted a bit of a pattern stitch on these, although the yarn is a variegated. I could not find anything I liked so far, so I guess I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
I have also ripped the raglan again. I made the neck too tight. Not too tight really, it would have fit just fine, but I don’t like it so close up.
Will have to add a few stitches here and there to make it a bit more off the neck.
I have also finally made up my mind about the braid I want to use. YAYYY! in 5 days or less! New record!
Then there were the 5 pounds I lost! wOOt! wOOt! 🙂
I kept them off now for almost 2 weeks! Wish me luck! There is more where those 5 pounds came from! LOL
If you want to loose a few pounds and don’t want to do it alone, join me and a few of my twitter peeps here:
There is no such thing as too much support! Keeping each other on track and in a good mood is essential when trying to loose weight! So come on by and say hello!
I have finished a few headbands too. You will be able to get them at Kiss my style! Oh yeah! 🙂
And that was it for this Monday!
