Four more rows

Knitting activity yesterday and today:

  • I’ve done my daily 4 rows on the Neck Down Wrap Cardigan. Nothing very interesting about that, either in the knitting or the talking about it. 4 inches of the 6 inches at the bottom of the cardigan now done.
  • Yesterday I also cast on the second sock on my Pot Pourri Socks. First sock pictured left. These are lovely to knit, apart from the double figure of eight wraps which take a really long time. Every 7th row you can see the lovely flash of colour that the wraps give: worth it in the end.
  • Listening to old episodes of the Fibre Beat podcast. I’ve been downloading this for a year or so, but never got round to listening to it before. So far, the episodes I’ve been listening to have concentrated on one issue in depth each episode – a nice contrast to the more magazine-like structure of my favourite podcast.

Looking at what I’m knitting at the moment, you might be forgiven for thinking that knitting bores me and is a chore. Far from it, in the last few years I’ve found knitting to be more interesting than I ever thought possible. One of the reasons for writing here is to keep a note of all the new and interesting things I come across. Still, there is no getting away from the fact that I am currently on a drive to finish up old works in progress (WIPs) and there isn’t a whole lot that is thrilling about that.
