A Blah Day

Yesterday was World Wide Knit in Public Day. Did anyone participate? I sure didn't. I mean, I wanted to and all but I got lazy. Quite frankly, knitting is a very solitary activity for me. Now, I do like chatting and socializing with people, especially knitters. But why should I leave my house just to knit with perfect strangers? Yeah, I'll save my money on gas and stay at home, thank you!

It was a glorious and sunny day in northern Indiana. I woke up refreshed and decided that since it was the Lord's Day, I was going to rest and knit for the entire time. And I did:

I worked on the Clapotis, started a hat out of Noro (pics later), and continued working on the socks above. It is a pattern from Interweave Knits Fall 2007 issue and I'm so happy to be doing this project. Unfortuntely, my hands tend to hurt after a while of knitting on these stockings. I think it's because this yarn is supposed to be knit on size 8 US needles but I'm using a size 3 US , just like the pattern says. I don't know how long it will take me to get these stockings done, but I love cables and will enjoy every minute of knitting on this thing.

I also got a package in the mail from KnitPicks. Here are some shots:

It's the blue/green lace sampler pack. Six skeins of gorgeous lace weight at a very economical price I must say. I have only shown you half of the package because I'm sending the other 3 skeins to a friend of mine in Chile. This should be a real treat for her, seeing that Knitpicks does not ship anywhere else but the United States and Canada.

Anyway, today I will be working on my health business and cleaning my house. I might as well, seeing that it will be raining all day. But before I close this post off, do tell me, what did you do yesterday for World Wide Knit in Public Day?

See ya!

I wanted to participate in WWKIP day. But I wanted to hang with my boyfriend more. I don't get to see him much, and figured I'd spend that time with him instead.

KIP day? oops. I didn't knit at all but I did see all of my immediate family which is very rare. Three nephews, one neice, two sisters, one brother, two partners, three parents (not all mine) and the hubby. Also, pink wine, chocolate cake, two cats and a dog.

I did knit in public on WWKIP day...but that's only because I do so regularly, on the bus and at meetings, and so forth.

My, my, my, those are some alluring yarn shots! I feel a strange, itchy sensation, just contemplating them. I feel, um...tempted!
