Nervous Knitting

Evenings are my knitting time, and lately evenings have been all about baseball.

Kansas City baseball.

In October.


And last night found me at the ballpark with my husband, standing most of the night nervously knitting along and hoping to see something amazing from our boys in blue.

Meet the sock of the night- the sock I formerly titled as the "Spare Sock" on Ravelry, but now know it as my World Series Socks. The Blue, the orange... so fitting. I thought before we went that the knitting would sit uselessly in my hands as I watched, but I needed the knitting to alleviate the stress, and by the middle of the 6th inning I was through with this sock and cast on the second.

Now we wait for tonight's game to redeem yesterday's.

Reading this week: Voyager by Diana Gabaldon and Anything by Jennie Allen.

Midnight Fiber and Fabric Podcast, Episode 23: A Whack of Hats

This week I wore the Shapely Boyfriend Sweater by Stefanie Japel, and several pairs of wool socks.

I worked on the Spare SocksLooped Loop, Ender's sweater and FINISHED Braid Hills! I also made a whack of hats, but there are no ravelry pages for them yet. I also cast on Glitz at the Ritz using a club yarn from Nerd Girl Yarns club Random Fandom.
