What’s in a name?

That which we call a Rockefeller would be just as pretty if we called it Roosevelt or Eisenhower…

I’m (k)nitting on and have just (k)nits bound off  the twelve drummers drumming socks. I used 2.25 mm needles and Desert Vista Dyeworks Zien with a fish lips kiss heel complete with twin stitches.

Then I woke up the sockhead hat in GnomeAcres Sparkle Gnome Batgirl colorway using US size 2.5 needles. It is also just (k)nits bound off. I really like the way this hat looks but I didn’t like (k)nitting the 4 inches of 2×2 rib and 8 inches of stockinette to get the look.image

The next hibernating project was Rockefeller (aka Roosevelt). I’m using Wollmeise Pure in Ruby Thursday and 47 Ag and US size 3.  I’ve changed the name of this project on my Rav page to Roosevelt because, prior to its hibernation, knitting group had a what’s on the needles check in and I answered Roosevelt. Another member of the group is knitting along with me and she called hers Eisenhower. Rockefeller was never president but served as vice president with Ford. I’m (k)nitting the dead (k)nitting part but it was originally a just (k)nits in the zone so I’ll leave it there.

My just (k)nits for others is Playdate in Wollmeise Pure in Feldmaus using US size 3 and 5 needles. I’m modifying and using an afterthought pocket on this one.

I also woke up as the on-the-go just dead(k)nits the Christmas socks that I cast on in 2014 and that have been hibernating. They’re in Desert Vista Dyeworks Zombody’s kissing Santa Claus. I’m using 2.25 mm needles and fish lips kiss heel. I’d transferred them to some Addi needles for sleeping and didn’t realize it till I was away from home. They will be transferred to Chiao Goos which are my weapon for preference.

Susan at Desert Vista Dyeworks is continuing the officially unofficial DVD monthly sock club but I’m dropping out. I’ve decided to do some shorter knitalongs throughout the year. Having to complete a pair of socks every month used up a lot of my (k)nitting time.

Till next time, I’m just (k)nittin’ on with no frogs, no tinks, just (k)nits.
