sock done

Well, I finished the first one, now onto the second one. For those of you interested, the pattern in Child's first sock from Nancy Bush's "Knitting Vintage Socks

Other random thoughts for this week.

Never sew your finger through a sewing machine. It hurts.
I seem to very easily pick up speech patterns from others around me. Seriously.

Nothing else creative to say, thought everyone would like to know I was still alive!

socks in the round

1 new year's resolution almost accomplished. I've been knitting in the round for awhile now, but this is my first attempt with the tiny needles and the tiny sock yarn. So far, I'm pretty impressed. The colors of the yarn are fun, although not as fun as the colors a lightbulb makes in the microwave :), and I'm enjoying the pattern very much. I'm turning the heel now, so I'll let you know how it goes!

Ok, make fun all you want, I joined a support group to help fight my growing sock yarn addiction.

I will not buy sock yarn for 90 days. Ok, I'm a little late to start. 89 more days.

The first assignment is to flash the stash. I have enough to make 11 pairs of socks. Here are 6, others are possibly planned for gifts, so will not be flashed.

If you think 11 is alot of pairs, check out some of the other particpants! One has 124 skeins!

That's it for now. Safe and sound home from Texas and ready to go back to dissertation land!
