one down, one to go

socks, that is.... note to self, when using self patterning yarn that patterns fair isle, don't use rib stitch for sock... looks better in stockinette (check out the toe as opposed to the rest of it) The bottom is in stockinette, but who sees the bottom??? Oh well..

One down, 179 to go. Days of school that is. Today was the WORST first day in my 22 years (OK, I've not had 22 first days cuz of sabbaticals, but.. well you get the picture) Not the kids, they were fine. Machines. As Mr. Slinger from Lily and the Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes says, tomorrow will be a better day (I'm taking my own electronics!)

The good news is I've moved up on the ravelry chain:

Another couple weeks and I should be in. Hope I have all the stash labeled in Flickr by then, so I can just upload and play. Of course I'll have no spare time to play, but... that's life

Happy crafting everyone

I just got in to ravelry yesterday. I waited too long to sign up, but it's worth the wait...I'm very impressed!

Love your finished sock...self patterning yarn is so much fun to knit with!

happy knitting :)


I'll be senile by the time my number comes up on Ravelry, so I will have completely forgotten that I had even signed up or the reason why!
