I woke up this morning not sure what day it was. sadly for me, it's monday. *sigh* this weekend was way too short. I did squeeze in a bit of knitting time, though. and I even have things to show for it. well, thing. I finished my first sock! it was surprisingly easier than I'd thought. I don't know what I was so scared of before. and not only was it easy, it was fast and fun. hello there, pasty leg! nothing like a wool sock in june.
in fact, it was so fun, that I decided to start another pair (I realize I haven't actually finished a first pair yet... but who says that's a prerequisite for starting a second?) for my friend's birthday coming up in about a week and a half. can I finish?? I'm not sure, but I'm going to try! especially because I actually bought this yarn to make socks for her birthday last year, but then got scared and didn't. I think I got her a card. anyway, I'm making elfine's socks in cherry tree hill supersock in the life's a beach colorway. this pattern is toe-up using magic loop, which was confusing to start, since I wasn't sure how to do a figure 8 cast on. but it looks pretty good, so I guess it doesn't really matter whether or not I did it right. I'm pretty excited about these.I did about 2 more cable repeats on the cardi. but I'm gonna try and focus on the bday socks for the next few days. are y'all starting to think that I'm incapable of actually finishing a project? getting you all excited with these progress pics and even half a pair of socks, only to leave you hanging as I move on to something else... you know, I always thought I was a good multi-tasker because I always seem to have a ton of stuff going on at once. unfortunately, the truth is I just start a bunch of stuff and never actually finish any of it. ha! tricked you all!
