This is how I roll.
However, I figured that maybe how I roll is the Whirlpool socks. Because it combines a lot of knitterly stuff that I love.
1) Wollmeise, of course. This is Am Kater Polar (or something to that effect...what does that mean, anyone who speaks german?).
2) Knitting that goes diagonally, but doesn't require YOs. Awesome! This is accomplished through ssk and kfbs, as well as a slip stitch with a bead.
3. Beads. i love these metallic beads and I love having the beads be part of the diagonal pattern.
The sock as a whole is magic, I tell ya, magic.
Today is Brain Dead Tuesday...I just can't sleep when I spend the night in Portland, regardless of how lovely the Heathman is (and it really is nice). I think I get a bit wound up teaching on Monday nights (because that is how I roll) and so its hard to relax. I should probably just get drunk after the class and just pass out (because that is how I roll) (or actually, that is how I don't roll, so it probably isn't a good idea).
So how do you roll?
