In the meantime, I’m still working on the First Sock. I have a bad feeling it’s going to be too small. Anyone out there wear a size 7 or under? Do I have the sock for you! Sure, I could rip it out and start over, but eh. I don’t wear socks too often anyway.
One thing that I did take away from the whole fishnest experience was that I like knitting small projects. This could be seen as damning evidence of my pathological need for instant gratification, or perhaps of my short attention span. I prefer to think of it as my irrepressible creativity, which refuses to be tied down to one project and is constantly looking for the Next Wonderful Thing.
So here are some of my ideas for upcoming knitting projects:
- A second place ribbon for Joe
- A “Feminist Knitter” felted handbag
- A document pouch for your broken, tattered copies of the Constitution
- And, since so many of my friends are having babies lately, Red diapers!
More ideas welcome.
