I've often said that I enjoy the process of knitting as much as the final product and I must say that it's a darn good thing! I sat down to work on my sock while we watched the hockey game last night and decided that perhaps I should measure it. The pattern says to work until the sock measures six inches and mine was seven and a half! Apparently I had been enjoying that knitting process a bit too much. Now, tinking is not a skill of mine, so I started with some trepidation and sure enough stitches started going every which way. My new life theory is "zero stress" so rather than chase those errant stitches I just decided to pull the entire sock out. And when Keith turned his head to see what I was doing and saw me pulling it out, well the look on his face was worth every bit of it! I have all the yarn wound up again and am ready to cast on again during lunch today and this time I will not knit quite so far without measuring. ; )
