the shady attempts of a southpaw to knit. or in other words, how to reverse decreases and knit right handed continental.


two days into the olympics

well..... i am into the lace motifs of my sock. yes, sock. singular. as in, i'm too dumb to figure out how to cast on 2 socks at once. i agonized over it, and tried and tried, but to no avail. so, i am knitting them one at a time. on the up side, once you get past the 18 rows of twisted 1x1 rib, the lace is easy. i must say though, i do not like the cast on method, as it leaves the co edge so tight... i think i will only be able to do a total of 6 repeats, 2 up top and 4 below. at any rate, tomorrow i shall knit like a fiend.
today was an odd day. we went up to dahlonega to see the in-laws, and spencer and i told them about their son in laws drug addiction. L and R have been hiding it from the in-laws, and neither of them had any idea. how do you explain, when Mom-in-law asked why L was still with him....? it's a jacked up situation, and the thing that drives me crazy is the selfrighteous snobbery that L so often spouts. how knitting is idolatry, and how she shouldn't read fiction, and should only read the bible, and yet she gets abused every day, and is convinvced that God would never forgive her if she left R. she told us, 3 years ago, when they first married that if he ever drank again, she'd leave him. well, he became a raging drunk. she also said, if he ever used drugs again, she'd leave him. can you guess what happened? busted for attempting to purchase cocaine from an undercover officer.... she's also said if he ever hit her, she'd leave him. somehow, i think that no matter what he does, she's in it forever. spencer and i prayed that he would get busted again, and sent away from a long time, because he's destroying her. i know that it's not very merciful to say that, but i wish she could get free from him. so yeah. knitting.
