On the needles...


sock for ME!
Originally uploaded by evilsciencechick.
I got my mom's socks off this week - hopefully she got them today, as tomorrow is her birthday. Sorry no final picture - I literall finished them on the way to work and then mailed them from there.

I started taking the shuttle in, as I refuse to pay for a parking pass ($100 increase over last year) as I'm only going to be here for a few more months. Anyway, I've discovered the joys of knitting on a bus - a little bumpy, but it's a nice way to start and end the work day. Plus, I'm probably known as "that weird girl who knits and makes faces."

I started a pair of socks for ME. I bought this yarn at my LYS, and for the life of me, I can't find the label. I think it's called "socktastic" or something like that. A superwash wool/cotton/something else combo. Anyway, I don't remember ANYTHING on the lable saying that it was self striping. I started on my standard easy toe pattern, and noticed...hey...STRIPES! I had to take advantage. I ripped out the 3 inches I had started, and began knitting the chevron pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks, which was designed for self striping. This isn't a toe up pattern, so it'll be my first grownup socks knitted this way (the baby socks weren't toe first, but they were teeny tiny). I can't be nervous about running out of yarn, though, as I have 450 yards of it. w00t! Also, it calls for an "afterthought heel," which makes me nervous. I am DOWN with the short row heel, but I think it only works for the toe up patterns.

It's hard to see the chevron pattern so early in the process. There were two other chevron type patterns I could have chosen: one was too lacey for this yarn, IMHO, and one called "welt fantastic" which I REALLY liked...and almost tried...except it was a 12 row repeating pattern. No way would I be able to knit that on a bus or watching tv without starting at the chart. So the standard chevron it is - a 2 row pattern.

I've never done a toe-up pattern, but I always do short row heels, so never fear my dear... it can be done!

Theiroccurrence is, moreover, a strong nackte pornos argument against the doctrine whichderives the dream from the isolated activity of certain corticalelements.The physician mustreserve for himself the right to penetrate, by a process of deduction,from the effect on consciousness to the unconscious psychic process; helearns in this way that the effect on consciousness upskirt trailer is only a remotepsychic product of the unconscious process and that the latter has notbecome conscious as such; that it has been in existence and operativewithout betraying itself in any way to consciousness.We see now that this is possible in casedream-disfigurement has taken place, in case the disagreeable contentserves only stuttgart erotik as a disguise for what is wished.Thedeviation from memory, which is but a repetition of the former flightfrom perception, is facilitated also teens upskirt by the fact that, unlikeperception, memory does not possess sufficient quality to exciteconsciousness and thereby to attract to itself new energy.
