(Poor quality cell phone picture again; sorry.)
I'm trying to get back in my knitting groove. Step 1: Forget those black socks for now. It's just not working for me, and it doesn't matter. Knitting is for fun, and fun I shall have. Step 2: Grab needles, and just start. I knit a new black mitten last night (it was too dark to photograph this morning). It isn't perfect, and I'll probably redo some of it, but it got me going. Step 3: Start a new sock on the train. It's the cool Rhinebeck yarn, in the IK Fall 2005 Rib and Cable. I had to make a few changes, including making the pattern repeat one stitch bigger. I knew the yarn needed size 0 needles (and every I do is on two circulars, until M teaches me the magic loop), and my feet require at least 64 stitches. So I think that I'm back in business.
Do I dare knit during the Knicks game tonight? I think that we are sitting fairly close to the home bench.
