Knitting without any time

Oh, for the lost days of last year when I had soooo many hours begging to be filled with knitting!  So far this month I have sat to knit exactly three times, and even then only for 45 minutes, all I could spare to spend with my leg on a heating pad to address the apparent re-injury of my Achilles tendon (GAH, to which I might add, OWIE.) 

Even writing stuff down here at Hugs - and there is so very much around me to write about - requires the giving up of other things, usually sleep.

Fortunately, I did get all four of my socks over the heel around the time the crazy started up in earnest:

so I've had portable knitting.  They're all still on the needles.  I'm hoping that won't be true on Friday, but - Kitchener Stitch?  I don't see myself doing that on a bus.

(especially if I acquire and begin to use the new seaming aid from Nancy's Knit Knacks, Seams So Easy.  I see a place for this in my life, but only if I can work sitting down, which is often not the case on public transit... and, oh dear. If you haven't been to NKK before, I'm sorry, because I fear I will have started you down a road of longing and pining.  Maybe we can be road buddies?)

I hate the Kitchener Stitch with every fiber of my being. That's why I use the Star Toe every chance I get- it is so much easier than that blasted Kitchener.

I hope your Achilles heals quickly.

Oh- the socks are gorgeous!

I love doing Kitchener and frequently do it on the TTC. Not kidding.

Oh man - now I'm dreaming of a Kitchener On The TTC workshop with you teaching, actually on a bus ;^)
