Knitting Police

You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club. ~ Jack London

I’ve often believed that knitting patterns are just a guideline. There is no knitting police. I am the boss of my knitting project, and I can decide to modify a pattern. However, it is a good idea to understand why a designer decided to do things a certain way. I like to play things fast and loose in my knitting so sometimes I like to change things without really thinking them through. (Have I mentioned there’s no knitting police?) 010.JPGI decided to make some changes to my TDS 5.2.17 socks. It seemed rather silly to do a provisional cast on for a sock. Turns out it’s rather important when you don’t have a ribbing cuff. My sock has a lovely curled edge. The second modification was to carry the slipped stitch pattern down the heel. I thought this looked rather nice until after I turned the heel. My heel sort of looks like it has a butt crack. The British Hubby has been affectionately calling these my butt crack socks. At least it makes me laugh. 011.JPGAutumn is here in full force in the PNW. The trees are so amazing. Soon the tree in our front yard will be sans leaves, but for the next few weeks the stunning colors greet me when I arrive home from the day job. 004.JPGNaturally, I’m enjoying the fantastic Autumn teas. Pumpkin spice and chai are two of my favorite blends, but I recently ordered this Wicked set. The tins are so cute. How could I resist tea with ghosts and eyeballs?

I also can’t resist cute photos of Gracie & Ernie.013
