I can knit with my eyes closed (sort of)
Yesterday I took my mom to her hair appointment and decided to wait there with my knitting instead of leaving to run errands. While I was knitting my sock, I tried knitting with my eyes closed . . . and it worked . . . just by feel. I don't know that I'd choose to do that very often (I mean . . . why?) but it's a few more stitches in the dark, right?
I know that I've shared before that I always have a sock-in-progress that I can knit while I wait. No thinking. Just knitting. The Opal sock yarn was from a swap with Jennie. Earlier this year (thanks to Flickr) I jumped the gun on her de-stashing plans to let her know I wanted that sock yarn. I'd never knit with Opal and wanted to try it -- plus, I love self-striping sock yarns. It's utterly unsophisticated but a wonderful excuse to knit socks with your eyes closed.
