spring sock

Well today, among the house work and the yardwork. I am starting to work on my Tiptoe through the Tulips socks. I am looking forward to seeing how this sock will progress.
So now I have to sets of socks on the needles (is this normal or have I finally went Well I am loving the fact that no matter how many times I have to frog something, I will get to the finished product and it will be totally worth it. Besides that I have to learn sometime and this is definatly the way to do it.
Now I got my coffee and my socks ready to sit down for a lunch break before I continue cleaning. However now that I am comfortable I am not sure if the house work will be accomplished. I wonder if I can learn to knit and clean at the same time. ( some how somewhere I think that may have already been accomplished.

sock troubles

Ok so my first sock has been on rollercoaster ride after the other and has now been frogged again. How many times has it been frogged you ask? I cant even begin to remember. This time it was apparently a lack of thinking or just not knowing. Or maybe both. Anyway, I got the Wool of the andes yarn from knitpicks, love the yarn and thought 2 skeins would make 2 socks so I would have a pair. Well if I were making them short socks or for a child that would be alright but for an adult... Not so much. So I am now back at the original color and skein I started with. I guess being new you learn as you go. Or you have really great friends who dont mind you begging for there help.(yet again)

I did take a sock class that was very helpful. So I am using what I know from there and in the end it is going to be one heck of a sock.

I will continue to post as my progress continues. However at the moment I do not own a camera( I know catch up will ya) so there wont be anything posted here as far as pictures( unless by some miracle I can find a disposable camera) lol .. I know what you all are thinking...

Have a fantabulous night and keep them needles moving.
