2 Days Later

O.K. So you take two evenings.....total about 4 hours...and what do you have??? ONE ROW!!!! It was a fight, we wrestled back and forth but I think I won this round!!! I guess I need to stick to "mindless" knitting when I am this tired!!

I am not working tonight...Chicks With Sticks meet tonight! YEA!!!!! Looking forward to sitting around with my knitting buddies and enjoying time spent with good friends and having time to knit!!

I may not have had time to knit at night much these past few nights but while working I have managed to order oh.....I think it was 8 or 10 skeins of yarn for socks!! I thought positive thinking here by ordering yarn for my future socks would be a good thing! Don't you think? Isn't ANY excuse you can come up to buy yarn a good one??? Also have some patterns on hold at Knit Nouveau and I just KNOW they will have some sock yarn there to temp me!!! Just not sure when I'll be able to get away!!

I also ordered bamboo needles and can't wait to receive them! I am really struggling with keeping this slinky thin yarn in control with these slick needles!! Hoping the bamboo will give me a measure of control. I can tell I love the feel of the aluminum and I am sure once I get used to working with them and the smaller sock yarn I will most likely be glad I have them!

Look at you! You're over the worst of it - turning a heel is nothing compared to getting the dpns to behave! I am so sad for Max's bottom, it was nice of him to pose for a pic.

Hee! Casting on is the hard part. That and getting used to dpn tips poking out all over.

Personally I am a fan of two socks on two circs, but that's for a later date.

Hope Max is feeling better!

TWO socks at the same time on the same needles???? Sounds intriguing!! Does this mean if I mess up one sock it is duplicated on the other one so that I at least end up with a matched set of messed up socks?? LOL!!
