I remain unspeakably enamored with the whole turned hem thing.

I mean, it’s not enough to make me forego my longstanding feud with stockinette (why, why is a fabric that’s so pretty to look at and so practical in projects so dead ass boring to knit? Does it not realize that this leaves me susceptible to distraction from literally any passing diversion? I’ve gotten distracted from stockinette by a falling leaf and then had to wander off and sit with the trees for a bit for some much needed stimulation. Yes it’s noisy in my head, why do you ask?). But it does feel lovely and calm and soothing and practical in a way that pleases me deeply.

I think…I think one of these days I’m going to have to see what happens if you do it with some basic cables. That will for sure go well and not at all result in swearing and flinging of swatches into the time out bucket.

But that is for another day. Today, today we embrace the stockinette. Possibly with an audiobook in the background so the I have a chance of sitting still long enough to make some progress.
