I am a lazy knitter. I don’t like to think when I knit. I like to just do it. This is wrong. I am wasting valuable brain here. Really I should be stretching my skills, learning new stuff, trying new things and just plain thinking. So I decided to cast on something that isn’t a mindless sock, but is still a sock because I don’t want to go too far over the edge just starting out. I looked through my favorites on Ravelry trying to find something I really wanted to knit that went well with the yarn I planned to use. See, I went to Joann’s and they were having a sale on yarn. I rescued some unloved sock yarn without labels in lovely shades of purple and gray. It’s Premier yarn Serenity sock weight in lavender I think. So as I was going through my favorites I found a pattern I had favorited Nov 26, 2008 and decided that now was the time to cast it on. The pattern is Red Vine/Blackjack by Rachel M. Blaine. I am mixing and matching the patterns by doing the ribbing for the Blackjack and the pattern for the Red Vine. Why has it taken me so long to do this pattern? I know I love it just as much today as I did way back when I first saw it. I am happily knitting along on the first sock cuff and each and every time I put it down I can’t wait to get back to it again. I’ll see you later. I’ve got to get back to my knitting.
