Let's Go Sideways
It's a swatch.
I know, I almost fell out of my chair too. And I was the one knitting it. I'm knitting a swatch because Nona told me to. She says I can't make her socks unless I knit my swatch first. It's a darn good thing I listened to Nona. Because my swatch is an entire half inch short! Over 30 stitches! Whoa, that was close. You have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?
I'm talking about Nona's Sidewinder Socks! I'm gonna knit a pair of socks sideways! How cool is that?!? And Nona is gonna show me how. Because she's friggin' smart, especially when it comes to knitting. Nona knows knittin'. I mean, we're talkin' about someone who swatches every day. EVERY. DAY. Just for the fun of it.
You can make Sidewinders too, if ya want. It's not like it's a private club or sumthin'. Something new! It's an adventure! I have exclamation mark-itis! Frankly it's about time I did something different. Because I don't know about you, but this blog is puttin' me to sleep.
Well, except for the Victor stuff. I still like the Victor stuff. But the knitting? Six thousand pairs of tiny socks and a truck load of squares? ZzzZzzZzzZzzZzz. Of course, some of you may feel inclined to point out that writing a post about a swatch isn't exactly Earth shattering either but hey, I gotta start somewhere.
