the voices in my head umm, the evil talking yarn - well, that's really the same thing, isn't it?? the desire to some day be able to wear this beautiful pair of socks, I have finally made real progress on my second Embossed Leaf (aka The Project that Never Ends). I've actually made it to the foot!!!
You know, when I posted that evil talking yarn yesterday, I thought you guys would be on my side. That you would help me stay strong and avoid it's temptation. HOW WRONG I WAS!!! Most of you left comment after comment, telling me to go ahead and wind it up. You guys. Well, that's okay - I'm thrilled for each and every comment I get. Even if you are bad influences. I love you all!!
AND luckily Dave was paying attention and has a far better memory than I do. I promised him last month that the next sock yarn I knit will be (some of) the Koigu in my stash - the Koigu I pet and admire but don't feel worthy to knit!! So, to keep my Koigu vow and also fend off the Hill Country temptations, I did this.
See that Hill Country in the background looking jealous??) So yes, I wound up two birthday skeins of Koigu. And I might have cast on. And maybe knit the toe. I suppose I could be going to knit a bit more with it now.
Yup, I was afraid this would happen.
