I broke one of my knitting rules yesterday. Yes. I said knitting rules. And one of my rules is that I only allow myself to have one mindless project going at a time. It used to always be a sock but, while my love for sock knitting has never wavered, my love for actually wearing hand knit socks has . . . decreased . . . in recent years. I do have a pair of socks on the needles, though, and the 2nd one is this.close to being finished. As in, there’s less than an inch of ribbing to go on this toe up baby. It does still need an after thought heel but that’s not mindless and I needed some mindless knitting.
Because last night was town meeting in the town where I work. And, while I needed to be there to answer any questions related to the library budget, the rest of my time was spent observing. As knitters, we know that observing and knitting go hand in hand. You know what makes for perfectly mindless and delightfully entertaining mindless knitting?
A Musselburgh Hat.
I started it at home yesterday morning to get past the fiddly cast on.
It was a loooooong meeting . . . and this is how far I got last night.
Town Meeting and Knitting. Just call me Madame Defarge.
