Just Keeping Me Grounded

The last I looked the name of my school was N--- Area High School. So why did my Go Team sock read NASH?

I was tempted to keep it that way. I mean who's really going to read it anyway? But the tension was a little funky so I ripped back and did it again.

It's still a little wobbly around the N but I'm hoping washing and blocking will even it out. I didn't remember how tricky it was to do stranded knitting on dpns. You want to give a little tug to keep the stitch from being too loose, but then you don't want to tighten the carried yarn.

While I was redoing the wording on the sock, I spent time rewatching Sara Lamb's Warp Painting. I need to just bite the bullet and cut the warp for the kimono already. You have to understand my apprehension considering my mishaps over the last month. What was that about too many irons in the fire?


  1. There's nothing like knitting to keep you humble. (Stupid knitting, always taking the p---s)

  2. Been there, done that. Be grateful you caught it so soon! Somehow the reknit is faster.

  3. You had to re-knit it. But what a PITA. Glad you found my new blog. Thanks for the compliment.
