I am so close.

Last night the husband and I watched Soldier after dinner (and have now determined that every single movie Kurt Russel is in is indeed awesome, including Captain Ron, which is possibly my favorite ever), and I worked on the Sock of Eternity.

I am a brief 8 rows away from being finished, I think. I put the socks next to each other and they’re pretty even. In the end, I’ll probably end up giving them to my mom; they’re too big for me, but will most likely fit her slightly-larger feet. Or maybe they’re okay as they are. I dunno. This gives me hope, though, that I will eventually finish all the other projects hibernating in my yarn cabinet.

Another lesson learned from last night is that although I can wrap a sari pretty competently at this point, I cannot get the pleats to stay in place while lounging about on the couch. It is, however, the most comfortable thing to wear. Even more so than pajamas. Now the task remains to figure out how to wear it out of the house (unlike actual pajamas or house slippers, it is an acceptable item of clothing). I have plans. We shall see which come to fruition.

And lastly, just to get it off my chest, I hate panic attacks.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    The pictures were awesome. Side by side in the frame, white American bridal dress, then lovely red sari. Beautiful!

    I met a new dog walking client today who is married to a guy from India. She was telling me about her wedding. They had an American wedding (white dress, tuxedo), and an Indian wedding (sari, bare feet) on the same day! 🙂 (She had pictures.)

    When I mentioned I had an internet friend who was working on learning to wrap saris, she said to let you know if you needed help. She apparently has BUNCHES of saris.

      This is possibly the best news of the past two weeks. I have so far mastered the nivi drape (okay, what I’ve actually done is to get to a decent level of competency, but I’m improving), but it might be great to be able to talk to somebody about this. I’ll file this away in my brain (I so want to see those pictures).
