Let's Twist Again!
Sock Number One of the Pink Lemon Twisty Pair is finished! I finished it last night, but haven't cast on for sock number two yet - that's for today. I am so in love with this sock. I can't even begin to describe how much I love this stitch pattern. After seeing it in the subtle colors that my Sockapaloooza Pal used and then in these bright and crazy colors, I have to admit - I want to see it in a solid or heathered yarn next. I know I won't get the horizontal zigzag scallops, but I should be able to clearly see the stitches twisting back and forth. Maybe this is one of those stitch patterns that does something interesting in any yarn!
I almost didn't get to knit last night. I had a bit of a mishap. One of the accessories for the vacuum cleaner has a crack right where it connects to something else and it kept falling off when I was using it. Since I use it on the stairs, I needed to fix it. So, I got out the super glue, dabbed a bit on, squished it together and ... glued BOTH hands to the vacuum accessory (so NOT what I would glue both hands to if I was going to glue myself to something!). Mickael ended up using nail polish remover to free me, but I still have super glue on my fingers. I have never superglued myself to anything! I have a known tape problem - back when we were first married and getting out of college and still moving ourselves in Uhauls (once we even got a standard transmission one! Talk about vintage Uhaul), we of course had to pack all our junk before we could load the truck. Every time we moved I would end up taped to boxes, with my fingers taped together, cutting myself on the tape roller, and having other adhesive adventures. I'm wondering if this is Life's way of amusing itself since we now use professional movers (HUGE YEAH!) and my taping adventures are limited to just a few packages a year. Maybe I should just avoid all adhesives - always.
Update: The color changes in this yarn are pretty short - around 4 - 6 inches is probably average. Some stretches are a bit longer but they are short and random. I don't think I ever knit all the way around the sock without changing colors. Does this answer your question Regina?
