Happy days are here again
This has been the year of connectivity issues with my internet at home. The gremlins invaded last week on Friday afternoon and I was without internet till yesterday afternoon. In the early morning or evenings, I was able to use my husband's wireless broadband connection but during the day (prime websurfing time), he has to use it to . . . work!
So I was faced with deciding what to knit when nobody's looking (i.e. when I can't blog or post photos to Flickr like I normally do). I'm so used to casting on and sharing here and there that I never really thought about how GOOD it might feel to knit without instant feedback. It felt great! And it's not that I don't value your opinions and wonderful feedback -- I have the most awesome readers, after all -- but when it comes right down to it, perhaps I could (and should) knit without an audience. I frogged a lot of WIPs that weren't making me deliriously happy. Ultimately, all that left me was the secret knitting and secret swatching (i.e. stuff I can't share here due to their being gifts or designs in progress). But it's no secret that it was satisfying to just knit -- to work on something without showing anybody.
What would YOU knit if nobody was looking?
By the way, my internet problem this time? Loose cable connections -- my cable signal was strong, but it wasn't getting to the modem! Once that was taken care of, I had to set up my wireless router again -- a two hour process -- and now I'm good to go. For the past several months, I was having to go upstairs to reset the modem at least once a day, sometimes more. There's no telling how much more knitting time I'll have now that I'm not constantly having to reset the modem!
