This is not-a-post, not much of one, about the not-a-sock I’ve been knitting. If you check out the post I made before this one and the post I’ll (probably) make after, they are about socks. Specifically they are about the Cirque Socks I’m working on for myself and have masterfully manipulated many of you into knitting along with me.
But right now I’m not knitting socks. I never was much of a monogamous knitter. I’ve always been a cheater and I’m cheating on my socks with my Something Blue shawl. Last time you saw it, the shawl looked about like this…
… and now it looks like a messy blue thing.
It happens. When you knit a shawl, it quickly becomes too big to be spread out on the needles and temporarily turns into a big squished up pile of yarn. Let me tell you, when your shawl looks like that its hard to come up with anything interesting to show your blog.
Which is why you’re getting the not-a-post. I just wanted to check in and fess up to my cheating ways. I needed a break from the little bitty cables on US Size 2 needles. So I spent this afternoon out in the warm sun making easy lace on stinking big US size 9 needles.
I’ll get back to my socks in a bit, probably after the sun goes down and I start to feel chilly. When my toes get cold I’m sure I’ll give my socks some love and attention. Until then I’ll be over in the sun making happy sounds at my big squished up pile of blue.
