More socks!

SSS.... What to start next? From left Lisa Souza pattern made with Apple Laine yarn (this one's actually finished), STR in Fairground (Madder Socks), STR Rocktober (Madder Socks- too small!), and Opal Solid (Embossed Leaves). I'm thinking about starting on Hedera Socks using Sundara Yarn. Yeah I should do that. For some reason after finishing the first sock I always get the urge to start a different project- I get bored with the colors too easily. Plus with all the goodies I've been getting in the mail I just can't resist.

This pair is for my mom for Easter. Nurses like colorful scrubs so I have no idea what she'll get to match this one! Shes' always happy to receive a pair almost every month! Can't complain though, knitters like grateful recipients!

Bad Luck!!!

Today was definitely not my day. Toby had to stay in San Antonio because his air reservation cannot be confirmed. My mom, grandma and cousin were of course delighted to have him around! I miss my little monkey! My flight was 2 hours delayed and to make it all worst, thinking my dog will be in the cabin with me, I didn't think about bringing a project with me. Well I did have a ball of yarn and a set of dpns- I just conveniently forgot that my patterns were in my checked in luggage. Needless to say I only got to work on the cuff.

I can't complain too much because I came home to 3 skeins of Lisa Souza- Lime and Violet, Sea Storm, and Violet's Pink Ribbon.

Always Casting On

It's almost 3am and I'm still wide awake- trying to figure out this blog deal and trying to decide whether I should start casting on a new pair of socks. I still have to finish the mates of the other 3 projects I have going on. Looking through other people's blogs can really get you in serious trouble. First you start admiring their work, then you realize "I have the perfect yarn for this project!" And before you know it, you're experiencing SSS all over again.... Sometimes I wish I can just wear mismatched socks!
