Girly Stripe is finished...

It's a new sock speed record for me. Cast on Friday morning, graft the toe Wednesday night. The high is going to be 78 today but I'm wearing them to work anyway. I'll make sure to hike my pant leg up when I walk past a certain someone's desk. Tee hee! Posted by Picasa

Girly Stripe #2 is coming along quickly. I'm expecting some Knit Picks Color Your Own by the end of the week, so I'd like to be finished before I dip into the dyepot for the first time. My goal is to be finished by Friday, which brings a rant to mind.

Last week a co-worker told me, "You won't have any time to be knitting when that baby gets older." What's that supposed to mean anyway? It's strange because complete strangers have told me almost the same thing ever since I became pregnant. It makes me want to knit even more just to prove them wrong. Posted by Picasa

Spring Break Socks

To the left we have Jaywalkers in an acrylic blend that I'm almost too embarrassed to name. (Bernat Hot Socks in Hot Tamale) The funky colors remind me of the afghans that my great-grandmother crocheted in the 70's. I shall wear them in her honor...sweaty feet and all.

To the right you see the fabulous Bonnie Marie's Sock Love in Lorna's Laces Girly Stripe. Needless to say I'm in love with this yarn. It knits like a dream with no itch in the finished sock. I'm almost to the heel of the second girly stripe. I've promised myself that I'll start the second Jaywalker when I'm through. Dear me...can I ever go back again? Posted by Picasa
