Update…not much February 19, 2007

Well, not much I can write about.  I’ve finished (you read that right, Viv) the secret project!  WOOHOO!!!  I am quite relieved that it’s DONE!  I need to do some tweaking on the pattern, knit it again (at least once) and then take more pictures, and then submit it!  Yikes!!!  I have until June to do all this, but it’s still scary.  Especially since it took me a month to knit the entire thing!

In other news, I’m participating in the Sock-A-Month-KnitAlong-3.  I’m REALLY hoping I can actually knit a pair of socks a month.  With the monster project done, I’m consentrating on my socks!  Hopefully, I can finish this month’s socks.  I’m almost done with teh gusset increases.  I’ll do a medium length cuff (rather than the super short ones I normally do) and I have less than 10 days to do it!  I’d better get cracking!!!

I have also signed up for The LoopyEwe’s Tell a Friend program.  I’ve never ordered from them, but have heard good things…if you are ordering, click on my link…I can get the referral.. 😀  I love yarn.

Speaking of yarn, I dyed up some sock yarn in a colorway that’s still in my head.  I’m wanting a grey.  Like the grey of a morning fog, with blue and pinks, but mostly pastel grey….I got some pretty sock yarn, but not the color I was wanting.  Once I finish the current socks (Trekking XXL #109 from my knit-sock-kit-swap) I’ll cast on with this yarn.  I just hope I have enough yarn…lol..I need to get a line counter to get accurate yardage.  😀  I’ll probably wait till we go to Cabella’s again. 😀

What Have I Done?? February 2, 2007

Hi All,

I was reading Knitter’s Review one day (like I do everyday) and there was a post about Sock Numbers (What are your Magic Numbers or something like that).  The post was about how many socks could you make from your sock yarn stash and how many you planned to make this year.  Well, someone posted about a Sock A Month KAL.  I rushed over to the site, and sent a message.  YIKES!!!

S o, now I’ve joined a Sock a MONTH KAL.  Yes a pair of SOCKS ON TINY NEEDLES in ONE MONTH!!!  What was I thinking???

Yesterday, I got a TON of knitting done.  But I also had a shoulder/neck/wrist ache in the evening.  Not good.  I’ve started the socks.  Well, I had started them back in August, haven’t touched them since October.  I only had about 2″ on the toe done.  But yesterday I did Many rows (like 30) on the Prayer Shawl I’m working on, and I started doing a row of Shawl, round of socks.  It worked well… 😀
