Suddenly, I find myself with lots of mindless knitting on the needles.
Lots and lots of ribbing and stockinette equals boredom so in order to survive I have to turn it into a game. On the long front bands for Elizabeth I use a stitch marker too see how much I can get done in a sitting.
With the Trekking socks, I pull out the strand until it changes color and see how fast I can knit it.
With these side by side socks, I have to make sure I knit the same amount on each sock before I put them away.
I'm also enjoying watching the colors change. They are definitely clown barf but they will be fun to pull out next winter.
