Compliments and Curiosities

January 31, 2019

Explains my last week. This week, nothing got done as everything was closed. So, I caught up on homework, Graduate School Applications, small personal matters, and quilting.

However, last week, when I got busier than busy (as everyone thinks I have a spare hour, really), I found two things happening.

Let’s revisit Tuesday first. I took my shawl to quilt guild. It’s simple knitting, and the weather was only bad, not horrible. So I got to chat with Jan, who was presenting and had a great trunk show. But others noticed my “mindless” knitting. The knitting is mindless in that I can knit while chatting with others.

So, this is what ‘even stitching’ looks like. I never gave it a thought…in fact, I wish I’d followed the pattern more closely.

One of my fellow quilters (and likely knitters)  commented on my even stitching. (I never gave it any thought, it is pretty even, isn’t it?). Alas, that’s just the shawl, in which I admit I have no idea what I’m doing.

Also, Thursday of last week, I was waiting for an appointment, and took my socks. I was working on them when an 8-10 year old boy asked about them. I think he’d been grounded from his phone and he forgot a book or toy. His buddy wasn’t there yet, so my complicated socks happened to be the most interesting thing in the room. I was happy to explain the stitches as I waited for my own appointment.

The latest on the complicated socks…we’ll see what happens between now and next week (hopefully).

Here’s the progress, so far. (Classes have been mostly cancelled this week, so knitting has been light, but here’s the current progress).
