Sock bug

Well as you all can see I still have the sock bug. These are what I have on the needles now. The happy feet one is the second one, so I dont know if I still have SSS, maybe a touch of it but not that bad. I dont know if the sock bug will ever leave, but I am thinking that I dont mind as I am having fun. So here are my newest pictures

Happy feet is first then Pink Clouds and then

sock whoas

So I am going to throw this out to you all and maybe there will be hope for me yet. I recently finished the sock called flat feet and have moved on to the second one. For the life of me I cant get it to start right. I have tried everything. I get the cast on going just fine and start the round. And when I think it is going good it is to loose and looks like a long piece of yarn that isnt to be there. This is probably not making any sense, but it is almost as if I am not making it tight up to the needles. If you have experinced that before. Maybe some one knows what I am rambling on about. If so Please give me suggestions to try to get this sock going.

home again

We are home now from our trip to Pittsburgh PA. It was a really nice time for us , a good get away.It was also really great to meet the people that you email in person. I love the group they are all real sweet and fun. I got some reading done but unfortunatly no knitting, by the time I sat to relax I was to tired to do get my fingers moving..

I am working on my Pink Clouds socks, will post a picture of what i got done tomorrow. I also got some square double pointed needles in 7 inches that I really like.

It is a cloudy day here with rain on the way and what better thing to do than to sit and knit socks.

happy knitting

yarn shopping

Yesterday was a lot of fun, Tom and I went to Waterford to Marg Butlers Country yarn and I got some more sock yarn. (Yes, I know..more? Some one told me that sock yarn doesnt count as stash.) And with all the fun colors, how could I resist. It was a fun day. But it didnt stop there because yesterday was also First Friday Happy Hour at the Purl and that was a blast as usual. My sock suitcase came in so I was very excited about that(and yes Tom was right I will have to get more of them) I got to knit with my friends and had a winecooler and some chocolate.

I think the best part of the day was that Tom was with me and we had an awesome time. (not to mention all the yummy sock yarn I got to. )

Pictures to come soon of some of the socks and the sweater I have started.

Happy Saturday!!!!!!!!
