So here is my ode to Socktoberfest 2007
I came, I knit, I drank, I ripped. That is all I have to say about that.
In regards to the picture above, here are a few of my thoughts:
- I am a girl drink drunk so I don’t drink beer, instead I opt for fruity and sweet drinks, hence the Hard Cider.
- The loose Monkey was not doing it for me. Lesson learned here, 2.5mm is often classified as size US1, US1.5, OR US2. Knitter beware!
- Yes, that yarn on the ball winder is the beginning to the end of the monkey you see behind it.
- I now know that it is not only my knitting mojo, but my crafting mojo in general is all screwed up. For the shirt I was making for class, I ended up making two of the same sleeve instead of a right and left. Unlike the semi forgiving nature of knitting, sewing is not so generous. So more cutting ahead, while I burn one of the sleeves in effigy to banish the evil crafting spirits.
