For socks that is. No worries – I’ve already cast on for the mate – but haven’t had a chance to knit past the cuff. I plan on hunkering down with that one tonight. Sometimes, my socks are on the needles a lot longer than I planned on, and this pair is becoming one of those. I’d really like to finish these up by the end of the week – totally possible but not entirely probable. These are the Diagonal Cross-Rib Socks from Favorite Socks. Love that book. I’ve got quite a few patterns in it queued up and I’m looking for a nice light color to knit on the next pair. I have to say, my sock pattern books are some of my favorite books to thumb through and I wouldn’t trade a single one in. They are definitely my most used resource when it comes to my sock-knitting. I know there are so many resources on the net – tons of free patterns even – but something about paging through a book laying in bed, lounging outside with a few pattern books at my side or just putting one in my knitting bag to look through in a spare moment here or there – you just can’t do that with the internet. I have a good amount of knitting books on or near my bedside table – and it’s perfect reading for winding down before bed, or for those sleepless times encountered.
Thanks for all the comments on the know-it-all problems and young drivers. I shudder a little at all the stories you wrote about the drivers you encountered! Pretty scary times. I wish people would just slow the heck down, take a minute and a breath – being a few minutes late is so much better than causing an accident. And the know-it-alls? Apparently they don’t know it all – or else they would know they were a know-it-all!
Tomorrow is Friday. Blessed, blessed Friday. It’s sorta like a cool drink of water after a long walk through the week. Who decided work weeks should be longer than weekends? It really doesn’t seem fair.
