am i demented?

am i the only knitter in the world who enjoys knitting corrugated ribbing? maybe it's because i don't mind purling. it takes a few minutes to retrain my hands to knit a regular purl stitch, and not a combined knitting purl stitch. didn't think i needed the combined knitting for this rib, plus regular purl is faster in the rib. corrugated ribbing gives you a preview of how the colors will flow together.

and i do loves me spit splicing, look ma, only 2 ends to darn in ;-0

have been thinking over the weekend about annie's question and internet friendships. without the internet, i would never have met most of my fiber friends. many of whom i now know in person, some still only over the net. since i don't have many friends in lake placid of the fibery persuasion, i cherish my online friendships :-)

Well *I* like two color ribbing, Miss V. Yes, it is a lot more work but what a stunning way to begin a colorwork piece. The Koigu sweater looks great on you...perfect for Bend. :o)

What beautiful ribbing, the colours are gorgeous.

I must try combination knitting. I don't know if I can re-train my hands.
