I have long resisted learning to knit socks toe up. I’m pretty happy with top down and just haven’t really felt the need to expand my sock knitting horizons. Cookie has tried to get me to take the plunge. Hillary has, too. But no one has offered an incentive that enticed me.
You see, the other day when I posted my list of underrated movies, my dear friend JessaLu commented that she has never seen Gettysburg. I hope Jess won’t kill me for telling you this but she used to be a Civil War reenactor and I was shocked that she had never seen the movie. Granted, it’s long, but it’s sort of mandatory for those of us in the hobby. So while I was giving her a hard time about it she started giving me a hard time about not knitting socks toe up. And then we struck a deal. If I knit socks toe up then she’d watch Gettysburg.
So, Jess, do you want to borrow my copy or do you want to get it from Netflix?
