what other kind is there

I was in a meeting yesterday and told a short story about an article that someone brought to my knitting group that was relevant to the discussion. The manager I was talking to stopped talking and stared at my blankly and said knitting like with two needles and then after I said yes mumbled knitting under his breath two or three times before carrying on with the discussion.

Sock progress

So I started this second jaywalker way back at the end of September and I'm still not done yet

. That seems sort of pathetic to me - I'm almost done with the heel flap and am taking it with me to meetup tonight to hopefully get the heel turned and maybe just maybe get this sock done by the end of the weekend. Then I have 3 UFOs that need to be worked on.

Last weekend instead of working on my sock I knit a dust mop cover, finished the whole thing in a few hours didn't take a picture and then used it so it's not in picture taking condition now but next time I do a load of towels I'll take a picture.

Finished Blanket

So I finished the blanket in time to give it as the gift it was intended to be.

It took 4 skeins of cotton tots all together. I think it looks perfect for a boy.

I'm hoping that it is well used.

I had knitting tonight and I seem to have made a lot of progress on my jaywalker socks then I am going to tackle some more unfinished objects.
