This is Gettin' Old


We really need to invest in a swift...

Rogue? - see yesterday's picture and imagine about 4 more inches of the same old hood. Still in love with it.

I did get to take a little time off the routine this morning and meet up with some friends who meet every Friday at the local coffee shop to knit. Very fun - must do it more often.... but, lesson learned: it's not too conducive to productive knitting - I can't, cable, knit, talk, and drink coffee all at the same time. Still fun though!

I use my knees for a swift. Sometimes it works; sometimes I get something similar to your picture.

I missed yesterday's post! Too funny- your theory might actually be true since both Bossy and my dad are outies. I'm an innie but became an outie when I was pregnant. Does that make me some kind of transgender mutation, LOL? I love meeting up with friends to knit, too, but I've found that I can only manage to drink coffee and chat at the same time. ;-) When I try to add knitting to the picture, I usually wind up with major frogging woes when I go home. I broke down and invested in a ball winder, but I have yet to get a swift, too! Luckily, my chairs don't give me attitude too often. ;-) Take care, Lynda! :-)

i'm sans-swift as well. so far i've been using chairs, my knees/feet, and other friends arms and necks. i'm seriously thinking of placing an order for one very soon. =)

my very first ride on an airplane was an international flight to taiwan from california. my little brother told me that if you flush the toliet on the airplane, it would cause alot of air turbulance. we were experiencing quite a bit of turbulance at the time, so i did my best to hold it in, which was terrible because it was a +15 hour flight. to this day, my brother denies ever telling me his toliet-airplane turbulance lie.

Trust me when I say that a swift is COMPLETELY worth it!

I don't plan to get productive knitting done at a meet-up, and I always bring my simplest projects.

STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER!

PUT DOWN THAT SKEIN>>>AKA>>>TANGLE MESS>>>NOW!

GET IN THE CAR!

DRIVE TO THE LYS!

AND BUY ONE!

I remember those days! Acutally I still kick my self in the butt when I see that sad ball-of-mess, $13 dollar investment, still sitting in my stash!

JUST DO IT.

I got together with friends the other night. To knit. One of us moved backwards on her project, two of us stayed about the same (after much ripping and reknitting), and only one made any progress. And not much.

Heh, I always have to remind myself to take a VERY SIMPLE project to a knitting gathering or things get ugly fast.

Go buy a swift and a ballwinder. Well worth the time (and frustration) saved.

First of all Lynda, your innie-outtie story was hilarious. When I was about 9 or 10, we had a neighbor family with a boy and a girl. The girl was my age and the boy was about 2. The girl told all of us that her brother was adopted, and therefore did not have a belly button. It was probably another 4 or 5 years before I realized that wasn't true! Silly kids.

I am loving your Rogue. I don't get bored at all seeing your updated progress pics!

Oh, what a tangled web we weave...

You definitely need a swift and ball winder!
Your Rogue is looking great, and almost done!
