Engaging in knitting shenanigans on public transportation. Creating awesomeness and converting non-knitters to the yarn side on NYC MTA. Est. 2013. 😀
Still working on my new project. The colours have been getting a lot of attention while I knit on the train ride to and from work. Today, the project and Pablo allowed me to introduce a fellow rider to knitting and Ravelry. I couldn’t have asked for anything better than that.
My goal is to finish this project this week. I think I might by tomorrow night! Feels good to use my hands this way again. It’s been too long.
I started to go to work today then got sick at the bus-stop. By the time the unmentionables were over, I was too tired and too nauseous to go to work, so I got a work from home day. I’ve been clocking tasks like a mad-woman but I took a break — sue me. LOLOL! I needed one after I saw what the SS tax hike did to my check!!!!
Just so y’all know I’m not goofing off — I handled 6 work “fires”; sent out copious amounts of email responses and added a few rows to this:
Edited to add:
I was going to wait until the project was done before I gave my thoughts but I have to say, one thing this puppy did was remind me to trust my own instinct. The pattern calls for 24 in circs. using super bulky yarn AND a cast on of 131 stitches. How in the Sam Hill did anyone follow those instructions to a tee and not end up with twisted stitches or a hole in the wall … after they threw the project across the room?
I’m using 47 inch circs. and the project’s still bunching.
