Things to love?

  • Opus. Bless her heart. All day yesterday she shepherded me around in my sleep-deprived state – making sure I got food, caffeine, and a large horizontal surface to work on. She also checked my maths and picked up my cable needle every single time I dropped it.
  • Graph paper.
  • Baby sleeves on baby sweaters. Aww.
  • Traveling socks (for Maggie) that I don’t have to look at to knit:

Sock#1 for Maggie

  •  Chocolate panini.  And the Pearl Bakery for making it.
  • The stash.  Petting it is therapeutic.

Things I don’t love?

  • Cabling. I suck at it. But I worked my way through it for the men’s sweater for ShiBuiKnits. I will not be defeated by this thing.
  • Winding yarn into balls.  Tangle, tangle, tangle.

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
