Have finished Sock #1
with the Birthday Yarn. Short-row toe and heel. I feel certain that my next sock will be ever so slightly closer to perfect, but this is darn good for a first sock, I think...or maybe I am being too kind to myself.
New title for blog, in honor of a conversation I had with Kirsten
, which went something like this:
Jen: I hate knitting i-cord. How much do I have to knit for this darn bag.
Kirsten: I think it should be as tall as you. Six feet or so.
Jen: Well ok, (fumbles with tape measure) how many inches is that?
(Look of shock and horror on Jen's face, then laughter as both realize that 144 inches is actually 12 feet, or twice as much.)
Maybe you had to be there - I laughed till I cried, and Kirsten nearly wet her pants. So now my worst knitting nightmare is embodified by the idea of knitting 144 inches of i-cord. The seventh circle of hell, or something.
