Some days are better than others, when it comes to knitting. I'm sure you've all experienced the phenomenon: some days you can't do anything right. Other days, it's almost like you could drop a ball of yarn and it would assemble itself into a perfectly knit sock. Today was one of those do-no-wrong days for me. (At least with the knitting. We shall not discuss the rest of the day. Nope.)
I was getting ready to knit the neckband with some size four/3.5 mm double-points, and thought 'heck, I'll look in my circular needles and see if there's something there' even though I didn't think I had ANY size four circulars, let alone one the right length. And there, still in it's package, was a twenty inch (perfect size for neckbands) size four needle. An Addi Turbo, no less. I think the Needle Fairy left it one night when I wasn't looking.
When I cut the neck steek, I didn't accidentally snip any stranded-color floats, or hack a hole in the chest, or anything.
When I picked up the stitches, I only had to do it once. Even though I didn't count them as I did it, it came out to an even number, which I needed for the K1, P1 rib that I'm doing around the neck.
The cat laid on me the whole time without chewing me, the needles, or the yarn.
Truly, a fantastic day. Other than the rampaging two year old and being sick. Yup. It was a good day. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Good. Day.
