Not just talking about it!
I finished my self-patterned newborn sock:
And so now I’ll need to make another.
I’ve also started my first pair of Cookie A. Monkey Socks, in Creatively Dyed something (Calypso sock, but I can’t find the colorway and the ball band is at home). They are going to be glorious:
Oh, yes. S&W is this weekend, so I may buy more of this yarn (different colorway, probably). It is lovely so far. I have found myself staying up way too late, watching Dark Shadows on Netflix and knitting my socks.
And that’s that! I’m taking a tiny break from SCA projects, except for event planning, which needs to be done no matter how lazy I feel.
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.
