SLOW DOW!!!!

There is WAYYY too much stuff going on this month and it has barely started!!

I have the Sockamania sock pattern that arrived yesterday.

Socktoberfest (no button this year darn it!!)


.....AND.....I have yarn that was bought specifically to make a pair of socks to wear to SAFF....sort of a sock challenge, 3 girls, same yarn....3 different sock patterns.


Uhmmmm.....I may not get my socks finished...especially since I haven't even cast them on yet...but will do that tonight! Maybe I can get ONE finished so I won't be too humiliated....I have only had the yarn for about ...well, lets just say ample time to knit a pair of socks!

AND...I've been Plying some yarn.....like everything else...this will require practice! LOL!!

I won't go into what happens when you ply in the same direction that you spin. It looked like REALLY LARGE Rami noodles , involves four letter words and we'll just leave it at that!!!! LOL!!!

Me Lovelies!!!!!!!! (Shown in crappy lighting)!

LOVE your new yarn! We won't hold it against you if you do not finish your socks... you can just teach us how to spin :)

Emily said...

Fun idea! That is a great way to show how different a yarn looks when you change the pattern - I can't wait for pictures!

Beth said...

Wow, your plyed yarn looks great! Nice job!

Sydney said...

LOL! I've done that (plyed in the same direction as the spinning) so I know exactly how it looks. :)

Love your new yarn!

Cindy said...
