Some knitting content

Last week one of my friends (you know who you are) got after me because I didn't post every day. Well, we all know that sometimes it's really hard to find anything relevant and sometimes we just resort to talking about the cat or how we had to take lots of naps to get through the day. So I don't always post but I'm trying. Mustn't disappoint the readers who have to be reminded to read once in a while.

I did make some progress on my sock yesterday. It wasn't very busy during the first part of the day but by noon I had too many things going on to knit on my sock. Since I teach on a drop-in basis it's difficult to know how busy I will be at any time. I had three or four people sitting with me for most of the afternoon.

When I got home I worked some more and again this morning. I'm decreasing the gusset now. I have some errands to do and Dulaan knitting tonight so I don't expect to finish this first sock today.

I was helping someone get started on her Clapotis yesterday. I got myself into a real panic when I read that there was supposed to be an increase at the end of every row. I've only been increasing at the end of the knit side. I couldn't figure out why her stitch count was coming out correctly with the increase and mine had been correct without the increase. When I got home I looked at my scarf and discovered I had done the increases as directed. It's just been so long since I started that I had forgotten that I did them. That was both a relief and a caution that I shouldn't put things on hold for such a long time. It's not like I can remember things as well as I used to.

I won't bug you when you don't post, but I certainly enjoy it when you do! Naps, knitting, cat and all!

I know, i don't post when i've not got much to say. I hate using filler if i've not post for a while, but sometimes, it's just needed. Not every day can be filled with tons of excitement, if it was...imagine how tired we'd be then. ;)

I love it when you post about Patrick and I don't care if you just pop in and say "hey there, doin' fine."

And I think napping is recreational and important.

I like you just the way you are - and I drool over your stash. Am i in your will?

I just found your blog while searching for another. I think I am doing pretty good if I post 2-3 times a week on my blog. I think I would also find it hard to find stuff to post about if I needed to post every single day.

I will be back checking in with you from time to time.
