Love/Hate

I finished a pair of socks. These are Baby Backward Ribs Socks. I used On Your Toes 4ply. Started May 10, finished the 27.

T at work took this picture of my feet for me, a new angle!
Closer look at the stitch pattern. It's P3, K1tbl.
I like the stripes on the heel.

I also finished two dishcloths in our new Bernat Handicrafter Stripes yarn. They are for the store cuz they just look like variagated skeins. This way people can see that they actually stripe. The first one was knit on May 28 and is lime stripes in just the basic pattern.

The second one is natural stripes, and I used the Reverse Miter Dishcloth pattern, started May 28, finished the 29th.
I've decided that the Knit Nite girls and I have a love/hate relationship. I love them all, they are great friends, great knitters, loads of fun, BUT they are also trouble makers! (I mean that in a nice way, though.) After much hesitation I joined Ravelry. They are all in there, and one in particular had a slight pick on me. So I had made a deal. If she bought sock yarn during our sale, I'd join Ravelry. So I joined. (darganknits) I hadn't done a thing other than pick a user name and password -- until yesterday.

Work was especially slow in the afternoon, and I know I logged in at least twenty times! I printed off sock patterns, added stuff to my queue (and just from looking at other friends' queues!), got a couple of projects posted... All the time thinking, "Dang those Knit Nite girls!" They have me hooked. Ravelry must be just like crack, I guess. I'm already planning on at least adding my sock yarn stash to Ravelry and maybe all my FOs from this year. I'm working this weekend, so I see lots of time spent you-know-where. I obviously will have to refrain myself from going there if I really have other pressing things to do. (Or else they won't get done!)

And I gotta show you this. A lady bought this cotton Regia, and it had a knot in it. Knots are by no means strange in the world of yarn, but this is the first time I've ever seen two totally different colors joined in the same skein! One color was inside the skein, and she didn't know til she pulled the end out to start to knit. At first she thought it was just a bit, but it's half the skein! Luckily we had more, so she just grabbed a new one. Too weird.
This is just too sad. Pop on over here and give some knitterly love. Also remember her contest.

Happy knitting!
