I seem to have gone back to high speed knitting, with a lot less time between cast-ons than usual even though I am mostly knitting socks, which take me about 12 hours each (24 for a pair.)
In fact, cast-on is now a more or less critical activity, because the worst thing in the world would be not having something I can take with me to do in the car or on the bus or while waiting for a friend.
I do have my faithful Kindle app, of course, but I'm getting through one or two books a week on that, so it's not guaranteed that I'll have enough still unread when I need to kill time.
At 2am however - that's a different story. Do you do this? Reading to fall asleep I mean, and then getting all tangled up in the plot and trying to read just one more page, and then crawling out of bed at 7 thinking terrible things about your intelligence level?
I do that. All the time.
I don't love casting on, especially in the round, and it takes me a while - for a sock, I really like to have time to do the first three or four rounds to be sure I didn't twist the needles the wrong way. Moebius sock anybody?
But once it's done, and the cuff ribbing is over - that's four or more hours of mindless knit therapy. Yum.
Did you have a fun weekend? Hope so!
