Mothers and osmosis

(And if you think that this post was inspired by a post about woolly ramen noodles, you're right! Except that this post is more about cables.

See?)

My grandmother was a knitter. So is my mother, although to a lesser extent. One or both of them taught me to knit when I was a child.

My grandmother, apparently, knit continental (picking). My mother knits English (throwing). I have no idea how I was taught to knit, but when I restarted knitting some months ago, I decided to use English.

This is fine, except... My mother uses the pencil hold. I use the knife hold.

So "monkey see, monkey do" didn't apply in my case!

And on to the discussion of cablesCollapse )

In other news, it's late Friday afternoon (well, 4:30pm, anyway). Last day of my week-long vacation, and I haven't done a darn thing about assembling any blankets. The squares for both Sunset Rain and Border Collie are sitting neatly, patiently on my coffee table.

I should work on them. Especially since I want to hand the Sunset Rain blanket over on Thanksgiving, and that's.... 20 days away. Erk.
