It's finished!!!

Woot! I'm done...all but blocking and weaving in ends. I love it! Check them out:

Please forgive the fuzziness of the pictures, but at least I took them, and posted them!

The camera strap got in the shot too. I guess it was tired of always being behind the camera and wanted to be in front for once. Oh well. The socks match for the most part; something weird happened around the heel and caused the lighter pink and yellow stripe sections to be smaller. I have no idea what that is all about, but they're done! Woot! I have the address to send them, and they'll be in the mail on Tuesday! Woohoo!

I'm almost where I wanted to be today on the second sock. I started on the heel last night. Actually, I had to frog back to where the heel started and start it. I got so caught up in watching Buffy and knitting that I passed the start of the sock. I just kept going, so I had to frog it back to where the heel needed to start, and then I started on it. I got maybe 4-5 rows in, so hopefully it'll be done today, and tomorrow I can start on the leg part.

I'm enjoying sock's fairly quick (depending on the size needles you use), portable, and once you have the pattern down, easy. The hard part is doing your nails and knitting. =0)

Woot! Ok, so I'm a few days late. It's the story of my life. Here's the second sock:

Here's the second and first together...I think they're lining up nicely.

Here's a shot of the first sock all on its own. It's lovely in its own right.

Hopefully I can balance knitting and working out and working around the apartment (chores). I'm counting housework as exercise...doesn't everybody?!

One down...

and one to go! I finished the first sock...I have about 2 weeks to finish the second. I'm going to spend as much time as possible on it, and have it ready by May 2nd. I have some leftover yarn, and I have a lovely idea for it (and to send it to my sock pal), but the sock comes first! I almost have the toe part done on the second sock. Tonight after church I'll take pictures and post them. Here's to hoping it all gets done in plenty of time!

Busy, busy.

I've been SO busy, and at times I've forgotten to post. The times when I haven't forgotten, I didn't have time. Isn't that always the way?!

For my Sockapaloooza update (yes, I'm still working on it, I promise!) I have one sock almost completed. I need to finish it (hopefully tonight while watching TV), and this week I should be able to start on the second one. Now it's a race against time to finish in time. Does anyone remember what the date is to send them off? I'm shooting for the second of May, but I think it's actually just the first weekend. I could be wrong, and I will check my original email again for the actual date.

Life has been turning in its kaleidoscope, making pretty colors and patterns, but not leaving much the same. There is so much to be done! I have to get started! I keep procrastinating and I procrastinate stopping! =0) Soon, I will stop. Today I will stop.
