I’m a Loser

OK, thanks to everyone for the ebay advice. I tried, I failed. I saved a few bucks, I guess.

I’m not eager to repeat that again, Ugh. I do NOT like adrenaline rushes, even when I’m feeling well.

Book by Anna ZilboorgOff to knit more cables, on the Cabled Sweat Socks. I’m eager to get that over with, too. I knit too tightly to enjoy cable knitting, and in order to make this pattern fit my small feet, I had to go down to a size 1 needle. The sox are looking wonderful but man, I don’t like knitting cables. The yarn deserved it, it’s a wonderful sockyarn with two strands of a light aqua-turquoise and two rainbow strands. Gorgeous. I’ll love wearing them. I have maybe 6″ on both feet to go, and I’m done. Countdown…

Why is I that I love knitting colorwork and I don’t have one project in progress right now using that technique? I’ve tried lace this week, and now I’m doing the cables… but what makes me really get excited about knitting is stranded colorwork. Silly me… I guess I know what I’ll be doing next.

I took a good look at Anna Zilboorg’s Socks for Sandals and Clogs last night. There are a few really lovely Turkish-inspired socks there. (This is a small publication, currently out of print, which originally came with a poster for hanging on the wall. I think if I remember right, Anna said it’s being printed again without the poster, but my memory could be wrong.) The instructions in that booklet seem pretty thorough, and I may try them out. Love the patterns.
