Today I’m feeling wicked smart. Seriously, this happens about once a year, so humor me for a moment.
I decided that since in the last week I’ve been unnaturally obsessed with socks, I would figure out how to do the Toe Up sock ala’ Wendy as I was looking for a basic pattern and one that was easily memorized for multi tasking i.e. metro-riding, having lunch with friends, watching the Wire with the tall guy and his roommates, etc. etc
After a quick Subway run, I sat at my desk and figured out the figure 8 cast on. I had looked and looked at the provisional, trying to copy Wendy’s trademark “waste yarn” crochet cast on, but to be honest, crochet hooks in my mind are good for two things. 1) Picking up lost stitches and 2) picking your nose. Okay, okay, maybe that’s harsh, but I still can’t seem to do a chain, if anyone wants to teach me.So, instead, I opted with the “tricky” version of a toe up. 25 minutes later, I was increasing like a champ! Yay. The toe is already done and I'll post a picture of the progress soon.
Next Sunday (the 1st) has been deemed the day to check out the SNB at the Warehouse. I’m getting brave and making new friends. I sound so much dorkier than I am. I swear!
Now, hopefully people won’t think I’m too weird at this SNB.I promise to not stick my crochet hook up my nose.
