Everyone was knitting socks:
And the thing is, even though we were all knitting socks, we were all doing it differently. Shelley was knitting top down on DPNs. Lola, who happened to be knitting way cool purple socks, was doing top down on two circulars. Rhoda was doing a second striped sock top down on magic loop. And me? I’m doing one toe up on magic loop. Isn’t it great how the same thing can be done in so many marvelous ways? That’s the coolest thing about knitting to me. I’ve learned that there’s no right or wrong. I don’t have to be concerned that my hands won’t work a certain way to use this certain tool or that certain method. There’s always another way. And that’s cool!
Shelley and Lola both like spinning and had lots to talk about. Lola reported that she just got a new spinning wheel.
Rhoda knits away on her second striped sock. Looks like she’ll be done soon!
I of course could not get out of the store without buying another book. More on that tomorrow.
