The nice thing about being a knitter is that there is really no good reason to have cold feet.
Weather turned a little chilly? AC cranked up too high? Put on some socks. I’ve been known to “try on” one sock for long periods while I’m knitting on the second sock. It’s probably a good thing that I only do this in the privacy of my own home!
Finishing up my Camp Loopy sweater with one full week to go before I can cast on for my July sweater means that I can finish up a few projects that had been lying around. I love the feeling of finishing projects!
This week I went to lunch with my co-workers. Our server looked at me and said, “how many socks do you knit in a week?” Ummmm… well usually it takes me a couple of weeks to finish a sock. “Wow, cause you were knitting on a blue sock last week!” “And you’re almost done with this one.”
I like to think that I only stood out because I was with The Boss. It couldn’t have been the quirkiness of the knitting, was it?
I wouldn’t have 2 pairs of socks finished this week if these weren’t the socks that I carry around with me most of the time. I knit while at some meetings, while watching online training webinars (not often anymore), and in restaurants. It’s a rare occasion that I don’t have my knitting with me. I get a little twitchy if I don’t have my knitting with me – you just never know when you’re going to have an opportunity to knit.
In fact, this weekend I plan to sit with my toes in the sand, a margarita at my elbow, and some knitting in my lap. And since an Official Complaint has been lodged by the Littlest Knitter in our household, there will be no getting out of bed at a particular time this weekend. The Littlest Knitter informs me that this is in fact SUMMER BREAK, and there should be no official wake up time every day during summer.
