I have gotten rather lazy. Not only have I taken to knitting in bed for 2 hours at night before I go to bed, but I don’t do gauge swatches. I don’t normally do a gauge swatch before I start a project since I tend to knit right on gauge. I suppose it is payback time. I started working on a pair of toe-up Jaywakers using the Magic Loop Technique over a week ago using some beautiful yarn by Yarn Pirate. Using size 0 needles, this is the tiniest yarn I have ever used. I was able to get as far as finishing the ankle when I realized, I could barely squeeze my foot into the sock. Just as well, I had a ton of mistakes.
Last night I said goodbye to the past week and a half I have devoted to knitting these socks and ripped everything out down to the toes. How sad. I am debating as to whether or not I make this my primary project, or start something else up. I think I need a small break from teeny tiny knitting.
