Ok, so the picture is awkward (it wouldn't rotate in iPhoto and I'm too lazy to open Photoshop) but here is the item responsible for slowing down my production of crack squares. I kept wondering why I wasn't getting as many squares done, and then I was like, oh yeah, idiot, you've been working on the socke in all the at-home knitting time. Silly rabbit. I don't know if you can tell from the picture (funny how patterns don't show up that well in black) but I've gotten on the bandwagon and am making the Jaywalker socks. I figured they were interesting enough that I wouldn't want to kill myself, yet also simple enough that if I screw up I'll be able to tell where I am (this is not so easy with black) so I won't have to rip out the whole socke. Because that would lead to madness.
In other news, if you were a guy about to have your 33rd birthday, and say your sister was a crazed knitter, would you want her to knit you an item, say a blanket, or would you rather have a gift card to Borders or something?
