Things seem to be going really well today. Could it be that Mercury has come out of retrograde?? (Yes, it has, thank goodness. When Mercury goes retrograde it is notorious for wreaking havoc on us Geminis . . . I got that straight from an astrologer friend). And lookee here, that little red [!] is FINALLY gone from Bloglines and all is right with my blog.
At the risk of revealing what a big geek I am (but you already knew that anyway), I will admit that I was very excited that it was almost 60 degrees and sunny. And that meant I could hang laundry on the line!!!!
Oh my goodness . . . . what's that on the end of the line? Could it be . . . how did that get there . . . why what do you know, it's a finished sock!!!
Hurrah, one Bestus Buddy sock is done. (Gee, I hope the neighbors who moved in over the weekend didn't notice that the crazy lady next door, who they haven't met yet, takes pictures of her laundry drying. Hi, nice to meet you!!!!)
To be quite honest, that has the WORLD'S WORST short-row heel. I even had to frog it once and re-do. I'm not thrilled with how it came out, but I have faith that my second one will come out better and I will see the Short-Row Light. I will say this, I've never knit a sock so quickly before. I think I may have a bit of a problem. I think I'm a sock-a-holic.
And along with that comes the dreaded Sock Stash Binge. I added two more sock yarns to the stash this weekend when we went to a LYS to look for buttons for Sunrise. Which I found, by the way!! (That is the sleeve they are resting on . . . as you can see, the front is just a tiny flap right now.)
MelissaJoon asked in a comment "What do you call it when you are faithful to one or two projects, but you keep buying yarn for other projects . . . I am afraid that is a yarn-wh*re!!!!". I'm afraid she's right and I'm afraid I qualify. I bought more than just buttons and sock yarn on Saturday.
And the pull of a pretty cotton yarn from Knit One Crochet Too was too much for me to resist. I cast on and knit one petal for a Reverse-Bloom Wash Cloth from Weekend Knitting. It's just a small knit, right? No harm done. Come on, we all knew I couldn't stick to just two projects. But I promise, no more than THREE!!!!
