I've been feeling too blah to knit much of anything. This is making me feel particularly bad because I should be working on the socks for my sock pal. She deserves wonderful socks, and it isn't her fault that I'm feeling blah.
On the bright side, I got gauge! Don't know what happened, but I've gone from being a tight knitter to being a loose knitter. At least some of the time. With these socks, I had to go down a needle size. Now I'm using size 0 Addi Turbos. Yes, I'm doing Magic Loop! This is exciting. Not only are these my very first 'real' size 0 needle socks, they are also my very first ML project ever. I guess I'm ambitious.
The other interesting thing I have discovered is that when I feel too blah to do any knitting, I get the urge to spin. For some reason, spinning is even more soothing than knitting. Perhaps because it doesn't require me to concentrate on a pattern. All I have to do is sit there, spin the spindle, and let the yarn slip through my fingers. It's very restful.
Now I want a wheel.
