OMG!! I am so freaking excited I literally jumped up and down, flapping my hands like a plum fool while screaming like a pre-adolescent Japanese school girl on fire!!
I turned the heel of my sock AND picked up all the wrapped stitches... ALL BY MYSELF!
Go, Thor! Go, Thor!! Go, Thor!!! Woop! Woop!! :-)
What a perfect topper to a blissful sock knitting day! I drove down to Geneva, IL for the "Wool & Company" knit together. Met a wonderful group of knitters, all very fun and friendly... then continued knitting with Ben (ManMadeKnits) over gelato, getting to meet some of his wonderful friends from church and yoga... then we went out for sushi & knitting where we were met by our joyous co-conspirator, Beth (ETRamblings).
BTW, all the ladies at this afternoon's knit together "Hooted & Howled" over Dave's posting of the Willy Warmer!! Some of the questions that followed once the hubaballoo calmed down were hilarious! What kind of yarn is best for that sort of project? Do you guys REALLY wear a "Willy Warmer"? Do you really NEED to wear a "Willy Warmer"? What happens if you, er...uh, well, you know... get... uhm, well, a r o u s e d ? Does the yarn stretch? LOL! It certainly made for an afternoon of great merriment!
