Fearless Knitting ?????

It’s getting cooler, I’m waking up with knits on my mind.  Can you believe, I dreamt about making socks, getting my drivers license (don’t ask :P), doing a cable scarf and learning to knit continental style?  I’m not exactly sure what’s happening maybe it’s some kind of psychological process — you know, getting comfortable in my subconscious of things knitterly and otherwise that cause me some anxiety.  Come on … what else can it be?  Who wakes up with his/her first conscious thought as “I’m going to knit sock on dpns or magic loop”?  Who?  Seriously?

All I know is this … while I’m going through my beginner sock patterns and continental style knitting videos, my hands were itching to do something so I started one of my YOP items.  I’m using my Malabrigo Rios in Purgurdas to do my Drop Stitch Scarf.  I’m telling you right now, my heart was in my throat as I started dropping the stitches.  There goes that fear thing again … 🙄  But what’s been helping is that to avoid errors, once I get to the drop rows, I’ve been reading the pattern backwards.  So far so good.  Beautiful yarn, great pattern, sucker-free knitting ( 😛 ) — what’s not to squee about?  😀 

You know you want to, so let’s head over to Rip It Good’s for Squee Sundays and see what everyone is squeeing about.  Happy Sunday!!!! 🙂

    It looks great so far! I tried that pattern once and gave up because I wasn’t happy with how it looked.

      Thanks Lauren. Do you think you’ll try the pattern again?

      Thanks Sharon. 🙂

      It wasn’t freeing until I got to the second repeat. Whew 😀
