    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

The knitting knows when it's being unattended, and it doesn't like it.

I'm glad you found your tool bag. It's maddening when things like that go missing. Very pretty sock! Have you ever tried cutting a straw into rings for stitch markers? They don't seem as "springy" as others, and if you lose one, it's not a big deal.
