I mention it because:
I’m doing a Spiral Staircase Hat, leftward twisting version, but I’m using a DK weight yarn on a US4(3.5 mm) needle, so I had to adjust the pattern to a cast-on of 90 stitches. I threw in an increase to 99 stitches in the hat body to make 11 stitches instead of 8 in the sections. I also changed up the order of the stitches to “kfb, k8, ssk” in the hat section to give it a slightly different look. So I’m knitting away at it, and all the sudden, I’m chanting the little Laverne and Shirley rhyme as I knit and it fits exactly what I’m knitting. . . . !
one, two, (kfb) three, four, five, six, seven, eight, (the next 6 knit stitches)
schlemiel, schlimazel, (the next 2 knit stitches)
Hasenpfeffer (slip 2 knitwise) Incorporated. (knit slipped stitches together through the back loop — which is how you do an ssk.)
As to how (never mind why) my brain dredged up that rhyme and discovered it fit what I was knitting and then just put it in my mouth . . . Very strange. Probably the prednisolone. I get really wired when I take it — like practically bouncing off the walls. I’m on day 4 of a 5-day “burst” of the stuff. Thank goodness I take my last dose tomorrow.
