I could start calling this blog Match.com - I have another sock. After many months of wondering where my sock mojo had gone - I have recently knit up two singles to go with socks I started a year ago. My most recent finish in the Tesserae by knitspot.
::Tesserae in The Woolen Rabbit Burgandy Bean Harmony Sock Yarn::
I have to admit, I was bored stupid near the end - as I was fixed on American Idol, I knit and knit and knit, to get to the end of this mind dulling project. I love the texture but it disappears when you yank the sock on. But it's done and I have something useful. Whew.
And I have even started another sock. I know. It's the Marlene by Cookie A. My knitting penpal, Christine, made the first one. The yarn is String Theory MCN - it's so squishy, I love it. And the pattern is surely going to keep my interest.
I could even make some knit progress in the next week. My husband and I have taken off together to do do landscaping work - which will inevitably lead to some car knitting as we troll the nurseries. A week of yardwork with my husband is a little intimidating. We do not work together on projects well - we are more independant workers, really. So far, we have our old, overgrown area dug out, dirt is ordered and we have rough sketch in our minds of what plants we want to try. We have some indoor projects "in case of rain". There are a couple of fun things on the itinerary to keep us working when it's work time. So here's hoping we can stay motivated and not end up playing Guitar Hero.
