After reading about two-socks-at-a-time from both Mary Johnson and Judy Liquidara, I decided to try this method during the time Charlie took his turns driving to and from St. Louis. Above you can see the book from the library and how much progress I made. I took their advice and followed the instruction VERY carefully at the start, and then I got cocky. Seems I really canNOT do three things at once. I can knit and I can listen to the radio, but knitting and being in a serious conversation with give and take was too much for me. Twice I found that I had three segments of the four on ONE needle, which is really not OK. Then when I tried to "fix" my problem, I made it worse.
I've learned my lesson: ALWAYS check that I am using the two ends of the SAME needle.
Tonight I am trying to knit and watch the World Series. We'll see how well I do with that distraction.
Today I added three mini-blocks onto the Chinese Coins floor quilt from BIQR. This is as big as it is going, since I have used up all my scraps from the floor! Now to get it sandwiched and quilted.
