Knitting and a Movie

Yesterday I knit a the movie theatre for the first time – while watching 300.

The movie was great and the knitting went very well. I made one little mistake, which I thought was bigger than it was. My bigger goof was not turning the heel in such a way that the mistake would be on the back – instead it is going to be on the top of the sock. (And naturally it couldn’t have happened in the middle of a block of colour, no it had to happen where there was just one row of a colour – geesh!)

But by the time I got home, the heel was turned and I was starting off down the foot.

(these socks are in Austermann Step, and are for moi)

The night before I’d cast on this sock, again for movie watching. It is the first ball of the hand-dyed stuff, and I’m making them up for a friend. NTS- ease up on the purple next time, blue finger tips are not sexy. I’m obviously going to need to do another rinse before I give them away… But I am rather excited about the fact that the stripes actually worked.

    Ooh, nice Austermann colourway. I’ve ogled that one in the store!

    The sweater I’m currently doing is leaving dye on my fingertips too. (And even on my bamboo needles, yipes) It’s going to get a nice rinse in blocking, I think.

  2. I like this one, but it is kind of odd in that it is the first one I’ve used that doesn’t have random dots … I kind of miss them.

    yikes – I’m using metal for these so they won’t pick up the dye – well not permanently.

    (btw – guess who they are for…)
