It's a sunshiny, sparklefied day here in Vutopia ... even though I didn't get up early to go running like I told myself I would. Maybe I'll go later this afternoon or evening or something.
Or maybe I'll go back to bed.
Actually, the other thing I promised myself was that today would be a "Writing Day." I need to whip out some of my short stories and try to polish those turds. Fun times.
In knitting news, I'm taking a break from sock knitting, and I've started on a scarf (pictured) for Mike (who Makes Cakes). Why, yes, it does use the same yarn that I used to make Josh is Trashy's hat (good eye! you are so observant!). Chelsea sent me the yarn years ago for my birthday and I'm finally putting it to good use. I kind of like this horizonal rib thing that I have going on. And, I totally love the color.
In my previous post, Terri had some questions about sock-knitting. M. Nicodemus was kind enough to provide an answer, but does anyone else have advice/suggestions? Here's Terri's comment (in full) so that you don't have to go looking for it:
Fantastic sock! Perhaps you should be a sock model. :-) I've just learned to knit and do so very slowly. I'd love to knit socks but am worried that it will prove to be too difficult. I know you're not looking forward to doing the 2nd one so.... any words for a newbie knitter? Should I; shouldn't I? (Do you know if all knitted socks use DPNs?)
I think Goblinbox has a pattern for knitting slippers (Fuzzy Feet?) that is good for beginning sock knitters. As for me, I made lots and lots of mittens/hats on dpns before moving to the teenytiny ones used for socks. Also, Terri, if you're not on Ravelry, join it (If you are, FRIEND ME!). The people on there are SuperFriendly and have always answered any knitting questions I've had.
Finally, pottery class was fun. I keep forgetting to take photos of my pots this time. Last night, I threw two nice sized bowls. Yay.
Have a great day! *smooches*
