The project I never told you about

When it comes to knitting at least, I am strongly monogamous. I just want to knit what I knit last, and I want to knit until it is completely finished. I finished the knitting on the green cardi yesterday on the bus on the way to work, and sewed the buttons on at lunch time. I took it home and blocked it where it is currently still drying. So, I was left with nothing on the needles. My next project is a lace shawl that starts from the lace border . I thought it inadvisable to start this at the pub, and Tuesday night we do trivia at the pub. And drink beer. It was more the beer than the trivia that made me hesitate about starting lace. So I pulled out my Sock Yarn blanket.

According to Ravelry I started this in June 2009, so more than 2 years ago. I work on it rarely, but it's there for me when I am doing complicated lace and have to leave the house, or if I finish a project before a movie is over, or in other knitting emergencies. I even bought myself Signature needles for it a couple of months ago. I did four squares on it at the pub. Not only did we win trivia, but the question "what word is used to describe the diameter of wool?" was asked. I struggle with sports questions, and know very little about music, but a fibre question? No problems.

  1. I love your sock blanket, even more so than the hexipuff that everyone is going crazy about at the moment. I also love seeing my scraps in there.

    Diameter of wool? The answer is ply, right?

  3. I can't believe I missed a question about yarn and a win! Such bad timing. I've really got to stop vacillating about the sock yarn blanket and just start it - I've been meaning to for ages.
