Blah blah blah, yes this is my Knitting Blog!

Sometimes a flurry of activity, sometimes a long time with nothing at all. And right now it looks like a gap of a couple of years (shame on me).

But blog or no blog, I do manage to knit every day - and so should you!

Finally cast on the second Bumblebee sock

No pic, but I finally had vive minutes to myself today to cast on the second Bumblebee sock.

This is the closest I've come to the dreaded One Sock Syndrome - normally I cast on the second sock within hours of finishing the first one, just in case.

More to come, as it develops....

About finishing that first Bumblebee Sock -

I gave up on the "finish the whole skein" idea when the cuff of this sock hit 8 inches. That's enough already! So then, just when I thought this was going to be easier even than a top-down sock, I just totally screwed the pooch trying to bind off.

Okay I read the instructions on the SEWN BIND OFF but figured I'd just BO in the K1 P1 rib like normal - I think you know how THAT turned out - had to un-bind off - a real thrill with size 3 - and now I'm still stuck trying to figure out the sewn bind-off with some pretty mangled stitches. What, no online video for that???
