Working on the "Bookmark Socks" is an exercise in facing my fears. I'm scared to knit this project because I'm afraid that it won't come out looking like it did in my head. I'm certain it won't, but I'm also pretty sure that it will be something new in the world of knitting. I'm worried that it's a really dumb idea, even though I'm telling myself to trust the knitting. My past experience is that I end up doing what is right in the circumstances and it will be fine.
I'm telling you this because I know I'm silly. But that doesn't make my fears go away. Part of facing my fears is letting the world know I'm scared. That, and I appreciate the support I get from my readers. :-) I'll bet you want a picture though.
This represents about 1/4th of the whole chart. Intarisa is not fun people. It's fiddly, time consuming and taxing. Just look at this mess:
I can only do a bit of this at a time before I want to sink back into the soothing regularity of my Frost Flowers and Leaves. I've added a fifth cable needle so that the sections could each have a dedicated needle. It makes it a bit easier to knit.
In other news, I got my invite to Ravelry! I've been cutting into my weekend knitting time to enter my projects into the database. Ravelry is going to be an amazing community resource. The waiting list is now 5700 long, so I'm very grateful to get my invite.
