I have been bitten by the sock bug….well I was bitten a long time ago…it’s really the only reason that I have been learning to knit. Sure there are other gorgeous things out there to knit…but socks…YUM!
Before I could even knit socks, I started buying books (many of these I got when Borders went out of business)
I love Cookie A’s books…the pictures are to die for! And I have started my first Cookie A pattern…the ever beautiful Kai-Mei…every time I saw them I was in love…I even bought the specific yarn she used…
I have 2 finished pair….my light green vanilla pair from Knitmore Girls Podcast and a really awful pair that I bought and royally messed up from Tsarina of Tsocks. These were really my first pair, although I finished the vanilla ones first.
So why this travel down sock lane?
The pair on the right are my Jaywalkers, the second sock I just ripped back to the cuff, as a bunch of stitches had fallen of the needles.
My Shifting Sands, I completed one, but it’s a tad short, but also a bit baggy. And I started my Kai-Mei, the green on the bottom….Next week is vacation, I hope to finish at least one pair, hopefully two…I have many other projects to get to…and so many more socks!
This came today
Books? You ask, what am I reading? Well I’ve got a bit of ADD with books lately…these are the ones I have started (or restarted – The Hunger Games – rereading after having seen the movie)
Dance of Dragons, I am savoring, as it’ll be a long time before the next book….most of the rest are books I’m reading in school….but I have several started on the nook too…..
