Thumb bracelet

Not quite the update I planned.  My post was supposed to be about finishing the Bloomin’ Socks but alas I haven’t accomplished that.  Yet.

Most of the time I listen to an audiobook when I knit.  Right now it’s the Maisie Dobbs series written by Jaqueline Winspear and I love them.  (I’m on book #9 – Elegy for Eddie.) Anyway, I’m knitting the toe of the second sock and I knit one round then decrease one round.  Easy.  It’s just plain old knitting.

Except I get mixed up on whether it’s just knitting or needing to decrease.

So I quickly made some “thumb bracelets” to be mindful of which row/round I’m on. Nothing fancy mind you but they work.

One for the knit round.

And one for the decrease round.

I just need to remember to change them out after each round!  (And please ignore my dry hands.)
