I don't think it is too strong a statement to say I hate purling in stranded knitting. Hate it.
I think I'm going to try switching to knitting backwards on the purl rows. I'm pretty proficient at doing it so we'll see how it goes. I have never tried doing it while changing colors but it has got to be easier than this. Blah.
I made a short video of me knitting backwards:

Don't you hate it when you "put something away" and you put it away so well you dont remember where you put it? I've got some test knitting to do and I can not for the life of me find my knitting needles. I have turned this house upside down and it is making me feel a little loco. My knitting needles are mocking me.
I think this medication is making my brain fuzzy. Or I'm just getting old. Whatever.

Well, a lot has happened over the past few months I have been missing from my blog. My mother did pass away on December 23rd, 2009. The grief was and still is overwhelming. I knit my sorrow into a mourning shawl. I knit I did not want to have to think about how bad it hurt. Counting stitches occupied my mind so I just kept knitting. Over the course of my mothers whirlwind illness I knit five hats, a scarf, and three shawls. Mom was always a strong proponent for "no idle hands", I know she would be proud. Working with my hands is helping me heal and I will forever be grateful to Mom for teaching me to be artistic and crafty. I miss you Mominator.
