knitting at the dentist

So today I had a dental appointment and of course took my sock I am presently working on. I am at the heel turning. And had just started the next row thinking I had time that the dentist never takes me early. Well today would have to be the one time he does and I am only 12 stitches in to it. So as she calls my name I am quickly decideing what to do , I so wanted to finish this row, but knew I had to go back with her. So I quickly pushed the stitches to the middle of the needle and put it back in my bag and told Tom to not let anyone touch it or else. When I was done my bag was right where it was left and the stitches snug on my needle waiting patiently for them to be knit.

Besides having dental work done it was a good day.

socks and more socks

I didnt think I would be writing about socks again. It was a long journey to make one and thought I would have SSS (Second sock syndrome) but amazingly I dont and am so loving making socks now, so much so that I have not got three socks on the needles. Yes you read that right THREE.... I am finishing up the second sock. And a friend told be to try the trekking sock yarn with color so off I wemt to the Purl to get some and find the most amazing blue. Tom will love them when they are done. And I have my flat feets going and the colors there are so AWESOME!!!!! Oh wait I have four on the needles as I am working on finishing my first tulip sock. Had trouble with the little chart but I got it.

It has been so much fun. I enjoy meeting with my friends and also being able to go to my LYS and shop, touch all the beautiful yarns and sit in the wonderful yarn room and knit with friend. They are the sweetest people there.

I am also working on dishcloths withthe Fixation yarn and it is great. Have to start knitting for christmas sometime right.

My LYS is so amazing. Every one there is so friendly and they dont mind if you go there and just hang out and knit. I went there today to finish my first sock. Yes I did it, do not adjust your vision. It is completed!!! WAHOOO!! I am excited. It looks really good forbeing my first one so I am proud of it. Thanks to friends at my LYS the sock journey has begun, it was a slow start but there is some releif and some happiness knowing that I have conquered my sock and am now looking forawrd to making many more pairs. I must admit that I was not ever going to make another one again, with all the hassle it had took my through, but now that I see how wonderful it is, I am so hooked.

So it was a good day. Got to spend some time alone with my honey and relax. What a great time.

Knit away.

gotta love socks

I think that socks are definatly trying my patience and maybe even on purpose. LOL.. I have decided that I need to get smart and only commit my sock knitting to one pair at a time. I thought having two or more pairs stared would keep me from going nuts but apparently socks are a one pair deal. So I have stopped making all but one pair. And it is surprisingly going well. There may be hope at the end yet. They have definatly worked on me and now I am hoping they will grow on me and I will begin to love to make them. Right now there is some love there but not quite enough yet.

So I will keep you posted on how I am progressing in the sock journey, for me it has been a bumpy one but I am looking forward to smooth travels that I know are awaitng me on this journey. And besides what better way to learn then to "rip it, rip it"

Have a great knit night. Sleep sweet and fresh dreams.

I got my very first skein of Noro sock yarn and am sooooooo loving it.

toe ups part two

Well with much thinking and a lot of frogging( and yes that is on the first couple rounds) I have decided to place my toe ups on hold till I make Toms first pair of socks. Not toe ups. I want them to be the best so I will concentrate on them for now.

This however is not defeat because I shall return to them(just not too soon so I dont pull all my hair out).Although with the summer heat coming maybe that would not be such a bad idea.
