Tangles

First off, this is hilarious. Oh the amazing things that you find when you click random page on Wikipedia.

So, last night went well. Amazing time with the other Campus Crusaders at Tech, GA State, Kennesaw and others. And lots of work on teh Sock. One thing to keep in mind: There are several things that should never be stored within a foot radius of knitting. Ipods with headphones and camera cases with straps. They all decide that they want to be close personal friends and they get very very tangled.

Today I was supposed to be doing volunteer work, but it was raining lots earlier so things got called off :( . More knitting time. Most of my friends are going camping this weekend, but that's not my thing. I'm going dancing at Agnes Scott instead, and there will be swing dancing! Yay!

Before I disappear for today, I'd like to sing the praises of these little babies. Lime and Violet talked about them in September and Mom and I ordered two sets after I got her addicted to the Cult of L&V at Christmas. They work fantastically to keep you from pulling out an entire needle's worth of stitches accidentally. I refer to them as my doodads, and when I've misplaced it you will often here me muttering: "Doodad, oh Doodad, where did you go???"

I'm going to go listen to L&V and knit. I am going to turn that heel today!!

  1. I'm happy you like your doodads! If you ever order more, make sure I resize the cords for 6" DPNS! If the caps tend to pop off, you can gently undo a knot of the cord and tighten it up. I then secure it with a teeny drop of glue (or nailpolish works!).

    knitting is a great stress reliever and when you are done you have socks or an afghan! I like the squares, that will be an awsome afghan.
