Multiplying WIPs

I finished my three little pairs of socks, and what happens? I cast on another pair, this time for me. Sigh. Oh well. It's good treadmill knitting.

Friday night is my night off, so Jasmine and I headed in to the shopping center in Wendouree. As soon as I got there, I realized my money was at home! So I headed back... a 40-minute waste of petrol. Jasmine was so hot and sweaty by then (despite the airconditioner) that I didn't want to take her in the car again. So I left her home with her Daddy, too, and agreed to be home by 7.

You know you're addicted to knitting when you only have one hour off, so you sit in a shopping center knitting... not the knitting in your bag but something new you bought (along with new needles) just because you were in the mood for yellow.

Oh yeah. I also cast on another hat. I'm testing out some Noro Silk Garden I bought. Sigh.

LOL! Pitty you forgot your money the first time. Oh well. Making stuff is so much fun. How many socks are you gonna end up with before you finish your vivian???

Treadmill knitting? Wow, that's impressive!

Hehe. My Neon sock got a bit sweaty today, but they'll get a wash as soon as I've sewn in the ends. I don't think treadmilling would be much fun if I didn't knit and listen to podcasts to distract myself!

It's a great mental image, pounding away on the treadmill to the mantra of Knit one, Purl One, knit one.... Of course I'd only manage about one or two stitches before I fell off.
I know exactly what you mean about having to buy new yarn & needles just because you want to use yellow... I'm resisting the urge for brown socks for some bizarre reason.

I'd have thought green (or cool blue!) would have been your colour right now, with that heat! I think that'd make a great blog title post, by the way: you know you're addicted to knitting when...

I've counted, and I have 7 WIPs. Six DO have blue or green in them. He he.
