Recently, upon examining my knit kit, the Ziploc baggie that I move from storage ottoman to knitting bag of the day, I felt a smugness at the relics of the youth of my knitting career. 'See these stitch markers and row counters?,' I said to myself, 'I can't remember when I used them last. I must be getting better at this.'
And yet, I've been procrastinating on the second of the Little Child's Socks. Why? Because the pattern is written row-by-row, and that just requires a lot of counting and paying attention. But, wait, don't I have a tool for that?
Progress has resumed. That '04 means row 104, as in 5 rows from the heel flap. Oh, yeah.
Edit: Oh, and did you catch on My Name is Earl this week that Joy made socks for Earl? That show just went up a few notches in my book.
