This past New Years Eve I spent with my boyfriend at his father’s house. It was a nice relaxed evening, complete with a fire while it snowed. We made a big dinner, hung out with his family and then went for atv ride in the freezing cold. In the boy’s family it is well known that I knit, and at one point during an overall pleasant evening I got into a rather heated debate with his father’s girlfriend.

I have a conflicted relationship with sock knitting. Much like fellow knitting law student Emilee, I’m not really a huge fan of knitting socks. I find them to be fiddely. Sure its easy enough to make the cuff and then flap but then you need to remember the proper way to turn a heel and pick up stitches and then decrease those extra stitiched you just picked up. Now I’m not saying that knitting a sweater is straight forward either but at least the needles aren’t so darn tiny and fragile. I know I’ve bent several sets of DPNs out of shape.
If you looked at my Google Reader you’d see that I have a wide variety of interests. I have the usual assortment of news and cute baby animals. It all started with knitting blogs of course. That’s where my true love lied. When I started law school I decided I should start following some legal news too. But then I started to add some baking and cooking blogs. And most recently I’ve started adding some personal fianance blogs.
You know you can get a lot of knitting done when you knit class. I managed a project a week during November thanks to this technique and a wanning interest in federal income tax. But thanks to my camera batteries never being charged and my own forgetfulness I have only two pictures to share and they are both of the same pattern. The blue one was for my sister and the striped one was for the boy’s brother’s girlfriend. But I haven’t seen her in ages and thus have been able to give it to her and it now languishes in my bedroom waiting for a better home or use.
