Knitting After Hours...

This is the second late night spent on these socks. I started them about midnight last night, and have worked on them a little today, but mostly tonight. These are Wendy's Seaweed Socks. And it's my second try at them...
The first time around, I didn't read the directions and started using my standard 1.5 Harmony circulars. The pattern calls for 0s. The sock was LARGE on my foot (for the small size). The 0s came from Knitpicks this week and I am much much happier with the fabric now! And the size...(come to think of it, I'm happier with the Harmony 0s than I am with the two pair of 1.5s I have...what gives? These are soooooo much smoother!)

Why am I up so late working on them? Well..I'm trying to be quiet, but I'm not sleepy...
And she won't say it but I can...we have "company." I'm not exactly sure why she thinks that's special, because I surely don't. I don't like extra people in the house. I just like my Mommie.

The Meeze is right. We have company. And they're very tired and went to bed I'm trying hard to be quiet.

(Thankfully knitting is quiet and can be done in low light (which is why the photos are dark, too! lolol)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Company is always one of those mixed blessings ;) But the socks are unadulterated good stuff! The quiet time is certainly being used productively...

I like the colorway of those socks! And knitting is a great way to spend some quiet time while letting guests sleep.

Sock knitting is quiet, but when Meezers want to go to bed, and want their human to come, too, it can be LOUD! VBG!

Hope you had a good weekend.

Knitting is such a great hobby for so many, many reasons; crochet too. I've just returned to sewing lately and I am LOVING it!!! Another great hobby.

Hugs to you and the kitties, G

It's a good thing knitting is such a quiet occupation. Just think if your hobby were playing drums! :-D

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
