Woe be the Loose Knitter.

I was all excited to see everyone's lovely (if grinningly smug) reception of my blog. Then I was so motivated to get started right on another project, so I could take a yarn off my stash list (because I found some other yarn I forgot to add, but they're on the list now) and have something to blog about.

Toe-up I went on the lovely Brigit sock from Socktopia in the Brooklyn Handspun from my stash. A simplistically beautiful cable and rib pattern in a pretty yarn to show off the details. But look...
You can't see a cable or a rib or anything because (deep breath)...

I'M A LOOSE KNITTER! I mean, jeez, I'm knitting on Addi Turbo Size ZERO needles and I still can't get the pattern to emerge.

So, fine, just fine. I'm think I'll use a twisted rib and cable pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks and see if that's any better. Brigit goes on my list of things I want to knit, but I'm still taking the Brooklyn Handspun out of the stash!

I'll never mock a tightly-wound knitter again. Well, maybe not never, and not only for being tightly wound.

Less anyone worry about all the socks I am brashly parading on my 2-day old blog, I've already finished my secret feet socks, she says in her own smug way.

Ha, Ha - sorry I'm laughing. I love all of your pattern under "I wanna Knit!" You may be a loose knitter, but you have great taste!
