I gotta stretch for this one......today I am thankful for:
1. Liking the knitting process more than the finished item. :sigh: Last night, I was on the 9th round of the 6th repeat of my sock leg - almost ready to start the heel! - when I noticed a dropped stitch. No big deal, thinks I - I can pick up stitches in my sleep! Only...this one involved some increases AND decreases (because it ran down to round 1 of the 6th repeat. :sigh: I tried ripping back to the end of the 5th repeat, but this yarn - while lovely! - splits like a banana when you're trying to pick up stitches. I got ticked...and frogged back to the ribbing. 6 repeats - HOURS of work! - gone. :sigh:
I have since knit back to the last row of the 3rd repeat, so...I'm getting there. I had wanted to have the heel turned before tomorrow, so that I could take it with me tomorrow. (The heel is a different ball of yarn, and isn't really portable.) Ah, well - today's project is to get the heel done...we'll see if I make it.
2. Having enough "play" money to buy another set of DVDs. I HATE Sulihaya's (or whatever) set....so I did some research and found a highly recommended set...and I had enough funds to purchase it. I need more than 1 set of workouts, to break it up and keep it fun...and her set isn't cutting it.
3. Our woodstove. It's been in the 30's the past few mornings; I light the fire as the DVD is coming on, and by the time I'm done, it's nice and toasty in the house. And it smells good, too. :lol:
4. Friends! Y'all have given me some good name ideas - keep 'em coming! (SwashBUCKler! :snicker: I think I have a winner.....for that scent, anyway. :lol:) And I didn't know that fat turns to muscle so quickly - that's a relief!
Well, I guess I need to get back on the sock. School starts soon......laters!
