A little more...

Today was Naughty/Knotty Knitters. From now on, KK for short. I did really well with the talking/knitting combination. Tracy was harassing me about not finishing anything lately (does she remind me of a certain annoying little boy - yes!) and so I worked a little on a new sock. It is Trekking yarn, blues and purples. I am doing it the regular way since I haven't taken the time to figure out the circular thing and start the Cherry Hill sock. I have plans for that but I have to finish my fair entries and Carey's birthday thing-that-shall-not-be-named.

I have to have a sock underway to take to the YARN HARLOT. Yes, we are going. I am so excited. I was telling the KK girls that we should have made Harlot Groupie shirts. Next time. Anyway, we are travelling to Los Altos on Saturday to join the hoards of other knitters that I'm sure will be there. She is my knitting hero. Her books have reduced me to tears many times from laughing so hard. I'm sure she will be a riot to see in person. I also must say I have her knitting blog bookmarked on my Yahoo toolbar, that is how often I check it.

I did make progress on the wrap at KK but when I got home I tried to do a few more rows between house maintenance and I had trouble again. Argh. I fixed it, and am almost finished with the second ball of yarn. Cuppy likes it. Much better than the camera flash.

I am renaming this wrap the Tinkerbell wrap, since I have to tink it so often.

So, do you need a good laugh? Check out this.

What's the difference between Tinking and Frogging? OR, are they just personal preference phrases for the same unpleasant knitting exercise??? By the way, I am NOT like the little boy!@?!!@#*! Your Pal & Co-KK, Tracy

Tinking is unknitting, usually just a row or so, whereas frogging is usually taking out more, even the entire thing, because you "rip-it, rip-it". I am just a walking dictionary of knitting terms.

I think I forgot my blogger name. Oops. Now I forgot what I wanted to post! GAHHHH!!!


Oh now I remember. I wanted to post that Cuppy knows there is a flash. She's smart.
