First things first, the FO. I made my first Baby Genius Burp Cloth. Not until I posted this did I realize I was holding it upside down in the picture. Whatever, you get the idea. I loved doing it and it went amazingly fast. It was a very fun knit and I already have colors picked out for my next one (which I will be starting tomorrow).Next, a timed project. I have never actually timed myself knitting before and I thought it would help keep my brain active with the math. So, I cast on for a Baby Bib o' Love. I know, Mason Dixon has been popular around here lately. This is to match the burp cloth and I love it so far. In one hour I knit a measly 23 rows. Sadly, that's about 15 and 1/3 stitches per minute. Knitting at such a slow rate meant each row took roughly 2.61 minutes. I felt like I was going fast until I actually crunched the numbers.
Last but not least, my sore appendage. Below you will witness a gruesome photo but I thought all knitters would sympathize with me. So the story... On Independence Day, I was bound and determined to get this huge pile of snakes lit. So, me being the oldest of the "children" at the party, I grabbed the old-fashioned butane lighter and set out on my quest. After about 7 minutes of sitting in the middle of the road burning my finger to a crisp, I ended up with a huge blister. So, I did what any sane person would do, I popped the blister with my teeth only to see when we got in the light that I did more damage. So, for the last few days it has been festering and growing and after my knitting marathon it looks like this:
Sorry that my post was so wordy, I usually don't like wordy posts so thank you for sticking with me.
ETA: Sorry about the poor photo quality, that's as good as PhotoBooth gets.
