I Know I’m Weird

I’m okay with being weird. I fit into my weird family. How am I weird this time? Well when I’m sitting around doing other things I almost always have my knitting sitting next to me. It might be in it’s project bag or maybe it’s sitting out on the table. That probably isn’t that weird. But I have on more than one occasion this week had my knitting sitting out just like the photo above and I haven’t knit a stitch. Yup, that’s weird.

There were other times I did knit though. That is why I’ve completed the heel flap, turned the heel and gotten well into the gusset decreases. Currently I’m debating exactly when to start the back again part of the There and Back Again sock. I’m thinking I might be okay to start in with the chart once I’ve finished the gusset decreases or maybe I’ll knit a few rows first. Either way I’m getting there.

So tell me, what weird thing have you been doing lately?

    I always have my knitting/crocheting next to me. Yup, there are times I just hold it in my lap and never do a stitch on it. SO, I do not think you are weird at all.

  2. Likewise. So if you are weird, your are in company! Your sock is turning out beautiful!

    I don’t think it’s weird to be accompanied by your sock – especially in winter. There is nothing like the feeling of delight engendered by your eyes falling upon your knitting and your brain registering what beauty and order your hands have conjured up into the world.

    If always having my knitting with me is weird, then count me in! And so it might be weird that I had a pair of fingerless mitts awaiting thumbs out on the coffee table for two months before I picked them up and took the ten minutes necessary to finish them. It just happens. The sock looks great,though!

    I usually have at least three WIPs sitting in my living room. This weekend I moved three to my craft room leaving two out but a third has already wandered back into the living room. I am also working on seeing the floor in my craft room.

    What am I doing that’s weird? hmmm…let me think. I will scroll through photos of my dog when the real life version is sitting at my feet.

  8. I’m weird in so many ways. Lately it has been wearing sweatpants and handknit sweaters most of the time.

    I’ve been painting white DMC thread to avoid buying additional colors. That sounds like it qualifies as weird.

    It’s like a baby blanket: it gives comfort just be being there! I want to know I CAN knit if I decide I want to!

  12. What a pretty sock! I refuse to think of knitting as a “get her done” type of endeavor.

    Sometimes I take my knitting out and stare at it. 9 times out of 10 it will inspire me to pick it up and knit. So I don’t think that’s weird. I do plenty of weird things though.

    I do the same thing. One weird thing that I do is that I take a break from knitting, and look at yarn online while my project is in my lap.
