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?
