Happy Stripey Fun . . .

I realized that although I have been blogging lately, and there have been many posts that are fiber related, there hasn't been a lot of knitting shown on this blog lately. Let's try to solve that today, shall we?

A quick look over at my side-bar will show you that I currently only have three projects on the needles. (Okay, there is a dishcloth too, but dishcloths don't count, right?) My main focus for the past couple of days have been my "Happy Stripey Fun Socks". Partially because they are so darn fun to knit!!

Don't you feel happy just looking at them? Can you believe this yarn has been in my stash for two years? It was a wonderful part of my Dye-O-Rama swap package in June of 2006! It was dyed with Kool-Aid, if you can believe it. Jenny named the skein Happy Stripey Fun, and it sure is!!!

It's a good thing these socks are addicting, because I'm trying to finish them up before Summer Of Socks starts, since socks-in-progress don't count for that KAL. I'm just about ready to turn the heel on the second sock, but I still doubt I'll have it done by tomorrow. That won't stop me from casting on my new Malabrigo at the stroke of midnight though!!
