Totally non-knitting-related: So I don't have a blog, and when I went to create an account just now, I signed in with my usual boring username, myfirstnamemylastname, and guess what? It was taken! I have pretty unusual last name (in fact the only people I know with my last name are my parents and sisters--no cousins, nothing!) and a pretty unusual spelling for my first name, so I'm pretty curious about this other me...
Okay, now knitting-related: I cast on my Jaywalkers Sunday night and have four inches done so far. My previous attempt at socks was so boring my attention wandered and I ended up naming all my toes, but the zigzag pattern is interesting enough to hold my attention while still being simple enough not to get lost. Yay for self-striping yarn!
I missed you guys on Tuesday! I'm off to Google myself now. (Hee. Sounds dirty.)
Edit: oh yeah, I was working on my jaywalkers at work yesterday, and one of my male coworkers was like, "Is that like knitting?" I said, "no, it's not like
knitting, it is
knitting." He said, apparently confused by my bamboo dpns, "...but like, with sticks?"
