A Couple Of Things, Randomly

First I got a new app for my phone and I have been having so much fun with it I thought I’d share. I have an iPhone and as far as I know this app is only for them. The app is called Carrot and it is a to-do list with personality. Here is a review that does a really good job explaining what it is and how it works. I am trying to get things listed and done just to see the snarky comments and the rewards it gives me. Finally I want to do the dishes and vacuum.

Again, the color is not blue.

Last night while watching The Following and Body Of Proof from the DVR I starting knitting the leg portion of the sock. I didn’t get very far but I made a major realization. This is the kind of fancy sock pattern I really like. It’s got YOs and K2tog and the like but there are no crossed stitches. I’m going to call it a lace sock and in the future I will knit them. I like them just as much as a plain old stockinette sock. And yes, I list knitting on Carrot. It is something I have to do, right.

    Very pretty. The yarn is showing the stitches well.

    Wow, that must be an amazing app if it makes you want to do the dishes and vacuuming!! I think I could use something like that! No iphone though, so I guess the housework still won’t get done. Sock is looking great!

    Oh boy, I don’t know if I could have fun with Carrot. You’re funny to find it like an amusing game. Good for you on motivating yourself.
    The sock is off to a nice start. I think I would rather do YOs and K2togs than crossed sts.

    Ah I downloaded Carrot this week too! I had thought about downloading it for a while now but I don’t like to pay for something unless I know I’ll use it, so when they made it free I was super happy! I’m happy to see the sock growing!
