Archive for the “mom's gloves” Category

I decided not to ball up the yarn for Mom's gloves last night, because really what I need to do right now is focus on the sock. To that end, I meant to give knitting the Bloo Sock in the car another chance. It must be completed. But I was short on sleep, and had a bit of a headache to boot, and so the sock remained in my purse and didn't get any longer. This is no good.

Tonight I have to clean the house and run laundry and go to bed early, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get any knitting done. Tomorrow I have to clean the rest of the house and run laundry and go to bed at least on time, if not early, so I don't know about knitting tomorrow either. Augh! When am I going to finish this thing?

Maybe just a few rows before dinner and the start of my housecleaning...

I determined today that while I can knit the sock in the carpool, it's probably not a good idea. The stitches are small enough that I have to watch what I'm doing very closely, and I got a bit of a headache from not looking up often enough. Also, I purled where I should have knit and had to fix my error when I got home.

Anyway, less typing means more knitting, so I'm off to it! Perhaps I'll wind the yarn for Mom's gloves into a ball and knit a gauge swatch in the car tomorrow. Since it will just be stockinette and just a swatch, it won't matter as much if I mess up a little.

My friends' new baby girl is so tiny and adorable! They absolutely loved the baby blanket. Their expressions and appreciation made it all worthwhile. One joked, "you knit this in a weekend, right?" but when I said that it had taken about four months, they got much more serious about thanking me. Those are the kinds of friends for whom I want to knit more stuff! ...if they have another baby, that is.
