S is for Sock

Here's me knitting my sock this afternoon..............

OK - time for the heel flap.

K, k, k, k, k, k - oh wait.....I forgot to slip the first stitch - T-I-N-K

Slip, k, k, k, k, k - oh crap......I fogot I'm making a reinforced heel (which I almost ALWAYS do)and I'm supposed to slip every other stitch - T-I-N-K

Slip, k, slip, k, slip, k, slip, k - wait.......I think you slip every other stitch on the purl row, not the knit row - T-I-N-K

Slip, k, k, k, k, k, k, k, k, k - damn.....hang on a sec - that just does not seem right - yeah, I think you DO slip every other stitch on the knit side - T-I-N-K

K, slip, k, slip, k, slip, k, slip, k, slip - ah SHIT! I forgot to slip the first friggin stitch again! T-I-N-K

Slip, k, slip, k, slip, k, slip, etc - GREAT!

P, p, p, p, p, p - Holy Mother Mary!! I forgot to slip the first friggin stitch AGAIN!!!! T-I-N-K

Slip, p, p, p, p, p, p, etc

K, slip, k, slip, k, slip, k, slip - God dammit!!!!!! T-I-N-K

Slip, drink, k, slip, drink, k, slip, drink, k, slip, drink, k - Much better..........

No honey, I don't need a break..........

I know but knitting really IS relaxing............

What? Sure, I could use another glass of wine - thanks!

So, I got about 3 rows done in about 30 minutes. Geeezzzzzzzzzz

the other night I was sitting in the hotel and went to cast on a sock. After about 20 mins I looked over at Cristi who was knitting away on the other bed happy as can be. She was like ' what? I almost cried. I couldn't remember Judy's magic cast on. the only one I use for socks! GAH!

I feel you pain...

And all this time I thought it was just ME because I was new to knitting socks! Ah, sweet release...it happens to experienced knitters, too! Knit on...

I LOVE Judy's magic cast on. It has given me a new respect for toe-up socks.
For some reason, this evening, I couldn't count 3 knits and one purl to make a preemie baby hat. Well, I could, but not if involved splitting the knit stitches on two different needles. Apparently that was beyond my comprehension. But my ex is also being a teamo-supremo asshole to the maximum so I was a bit distracted.
And if I were Wayne I would be careful. Witchy girl has posted almost nearly naked pictures all over the web. There's no telling what she's got in her secret stash of blackmail pictures!!!!!

I dunno, Knit Witch...he's willing to post pictures of himself that might raise some eyebrows when he runs for president, you'd have to come up with some pretty special moments of his to embarrass him.

Come on, please?

Oh and don't feel bad, I had to cast on the fronts of my sweater 3 times due to CRS and I still failed to switch back to the smaller needles for doing so and had to do it afreakingain. This is after doing the sleeves and the back and being very familiar with the steps necessary in the bottom hem of the damned thing. : head desk :

She would like to embarrass me I am sure. She has the ability too! Haha!
