what am I doing here?

in which susan proceeds to get caffienated and knit all day. if only I could get paid to drink coffee and knit... that would so be the shiz-knit.

one pattern repeat down - who knows how many more to go. what fun! didn't get as much knitting time in yesterday (obviously) as I'd originally intended. magic loop is kind of a pain in the butt. maybe if the cord weren't so twisty. I guess this is what I get with susan bates. actually, I'm not even 100% sure these are susan bates. and I was thinking of getting some addis to do the rest of the socks on, but damn them for not making a 2.25mm! perhaps this is something I should have considered before starting. is there some way to soften up the cord? I feel like I spend way too much time trying to untwist it, which is probably adding on more time to the construction of these socks than I actually have. or is it time to just forget it all and break out the dpns?

otherwise, the knitting is quite enjoyable. I wonder how long it will take me to memorize the lace pattern. or if I will at all. and I can't stop thinking about that glorious artyarns supermerino! man, oh, man, I think I'm in love. I just want to cuddle with it while it whispers sweet nothings in my ear all day. just thinking about it makes me all giddy. how attractive would a full-length bodysuit be, knit entirely of artyarns? could I wear it to work? a wedding? the gym? no, wait - I will knit an entire man out of nothing but artyarns, so I can marry him. you'll all be invited to the ceremony!

    I've been bitten by the sock bug too and Elfine is a pattern I'd like to try myself -- your on a great start with your Elfine sock!

    Good job on the first sock! It looks really comfy!

    I also knit with 2.25mm Susan Bates circs (Silvalumes) and I was surprised that the cords were pretty flexible. I tried the Magic Loop method with a pair of 2.25mm Boyes when my Brittany DPNs broke and it was terrible -- even when I slipped the cords in hot water for a bit to soften them up -- no flex! top
