Sooooooo, I'm sitting at my desk, at work, at lunch, knitting some socks. I was several rows into the heel flap and had just knitted a row on sock 1, when I noticed something odd. Somehow, the points of my needle were pointing in the same direction. I have no idea how that happened. I had to move the stitches of that sock to a DPN, then move the back to the working needle in the correct direction.

I went through my LiveJournal blog and deleted all my knitting-related posts after I moved them over to Blogger. BUT, I totally forgot to copy the comments over. I'm not even sure if that's an option, now that I think about it.
When I left work today, I meant to catch the 5:05pm, west-bound from CentrePoint station to Hurst/Bell station, but I didn't make it in time. Since it's a little bit of a walk back to the office (from TRE station) and, since the next west-bound train wasn't due for another 45 minutes, I decided to jump on the next east-bound train. At least I would be able to sit in a (somewhat) cushioned seat and get out of the heat.

I've been using LiveJournal for a little over a year, but that blog is for anything going on in my life. I'm thinking about using Google Blogger just for knitting.

So, I have taken my knitting-related journal entries from LJ and copied them over to here. Once I decide 100% if I want to use Blogger for knitting journal entries, I will remove those entries from LJ.

This is a different type of iPod cozy. It wraps around the sides and back, leaving the face open so you can get to the controls and see the display.

This is another pattern from Knitting With Balls. I simply followed the pattern straight out of the book without playing around with the gauge or trying to make it fit my iPod. I had been thinking about trying this pattern and just wanted to work through it to see how difficult it is. It was pretty simple. The hard part is getting started because you start out by casting on 6 stitches between 4 double-point needles - 2 stitches on needle 1; 1 stitch on needle 2; 2 stitches on needle 3; and 1 stitch on needle 4. Then you start increasing.
