I knit. Specifically, I love to do Aran work. Even more specifically, I’m currently working on Alice Starmore’s St. Brigid, which can be seen here at www.virtualyarns.com under the “back catalog” area. (I can’t seem to get it to open right now or I’d post a direct link.)
I also have curly hair that my sister refers to as my afro. You might think these things are unrelated. Except that I keep sticking my cable needle behind my ear as I work, where for some reason it instantly gets tangled and lost in my hair so that I’m feeling around on my head to find my tool. This morning I woke up with a cable needle still knotted into my hair. I’d stuck it behind my ear and forgotten about it.
Does anyone have tips on where to stash a cable needle between cables? Maybe one that won’t involve a hair dresser cutting stuff out of my mop?
In other news, I can’t stop knitting! When I’m worn out from working on the very complicated St. Brigid project, I switch to simple socks I’m knitting with Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in a cool peacock color combination. I think I have about 30 pairs of handmade socks. So do my mother, sister, father, and grandparents.
Does anyone have any cool new knitting sites? Seems like everyone’s favorite is www.knitty.com. And there’s always Knitting Pattern Central as a source for free patterns. I could use some new stuff though.
Surely I’m not the only person with this particular addiction. What’s everyone knitting?
