Symphony and knitting

Well, the sewing project end up so great, but that’s for another day.  

Today started with chaperoning a field trip to the San Francisco Symphony!

It was my first time to the symphony!  This was a special short program for children, so it was engaging and lively, and it was very well done.  The conductor spoke to the children and explained this and that, and at 45 minutes, it was just right for a kid’s attention span. 

And later on was knit night, where I finished the gusset decreases on my Chasing Snakes sock.  Every other row is plain knitting (or a version thereof), so it goes pretty quickly.  When I knit on it, that is.  Now that I’m past the heel and gussets, it’s back in the category of Easy Knitting, so it will likely get more attention.

Red is hard to capture, especially at night.  It is a lot prettier than it shows here.  

Notice my crazy twisted needle/cable?  I’ve been knitting socks with the same size 0 Addi Turbo since the fall of 2008!  I’ve used this same needle almost exclusively for my sock knitting, which to date numbers over 41 pairs!  Wow, I’d never counted until now.  That’s a lot of socks!  :0
