So we knit and knit and knit, but sometimes the things stay on the needles! I can’t understand why even after all the stitches (I think) I put onto these lovely Technicolor Socks, I still feel like I’m a few rows from actually starting the toe decreases on the right sock!! I think the left sock is ready.
Maybe I’ll blame it on my long toes. Or on the US 0 needles.
Maybe I shouldn’t blame them at all. It’s so nice to have a mindless knitting project to cart around in my purse that’s not huge (here’s looking at you Turia)
or doesn’t need a book to travel with it (Bootstrap Socks that are ready for the heel)
or doesn’t need to be really looked at every stitch (Curl #2 Cerise)
or isn’t turning out like I think I want (Colour Change Scarf)
or isn’t a general pain in the bum (Skinty Stripe Scarf) with a kitty supervisor
or doesn’t need a chart, pencil, row counter and complete silence (Catkin Shawl)…
That’s all the current WIPs and most of them are not travel worthy…maybe I should just finish these socks and turn the heel on the Bootstrap Socks so I can have more things to travel with and some empty needles?
Or the alternative…
I could start something new! Maybe keep it in line with my Love Your Library Challenge and work on a Curl or another pair of socks from Sock Architecture? I could go and check out all the lovelies at Keep Calm & Craft On for inspiration…
What would you do in this situation, keep your nose down and finish or venture into the stash for something fresh and new?
