all dressed up and nowhere to go

I "made" these sock blockers this morning. last weekend, while I was busy buying yarn I had no business even being in the same room as, I saw these nifty fiber trends blockers. but even with the big sale, they were still over $20, which I thought was a bit much. I remembered hearing something about making your own out of wire hangers and found the directions here. not as fancy pants, but so simple, and free! I think I still need to reshape them a little so they look more like socks, since I basically just did some quick bending before breakfast this morning. or maybe I should have done them after breakfast... unfortunately, I don't actually have any socks to block at this point in time. perhaps trying them out will be motivation enough for me to finish my potomotos...

in the meantime, the weekend is here again. I'm starting to feel like all weekends should be four days long. sadly, there will be little time for knitting this time around, since there's a wedding to attend on saturday and a mini family reunion on sunday. is it socially unacceptable to knit during a wedding?

    knitting in public can be tricky - especially when you're at a social event. my thing is, if you're just waiting around, got some time to kill, and nothing is going on, go on ahead!! (like waiting for the ceremony to start, waiting for the reception to start) =D

    i've got a wedding tommorrow too. but i'm coordinating it rather than just attending it. so no knitting/relaxing for me... =( top
