Nov 2

This past month has sped by at an alarming rate, and I’m not quite sure if I remember all of it. There were ups and downs, changes in logic, and gob-smacked moments. I’m happy for where we have ended up, but- my-lands -that was a bumpy ride!

So we finish up SOCKtoBEER with not a single completed pair of socks, and look forward to better knitting juju in NOROvember.

Rrrrip!

Do you see that? That. The pile of what looks to be brightly colored spaghetti. That is 11 unfriendly rows of my poncho.

There were some incidents with an unhappy stitch marker and one dropped stitch (unrelated to the stitch marker). Eleven rows back, spirally down the path. Usually I don’t have major issues with frogging an item, but when it’s knit the round (circular needles) it seems to be a bit more of a hassle.

So I ripped. And now it’s time to begin knitting again. In fact, apparently I’m passed due. There are a couple of folks that have started ponchos after me and have completed them. I guess I’m a slow poke knitter.
