I am busy. Oh so busy. Busy preparing for my class tonight, and also busy – really really busy – trying to finish these damned socks. Quickly, I will just share with you that I had one sock completely done and just waiting to be kitchenered at the toe when I realized that I had royally f*’d up the heel. There are pictures, but I am too busy to load pictures today. Naptime only lasts so long, people. So I ripped that sucker back, and now it is done and I am well past the heel of sock number two. I would reallyreallyreally like to get those sock in the mail tomorrow morning. Why? Because I think I actually have a chance of getting a second pair of socks in my hot little hands before I get killed off, and I think that would be fun. I can’t explain why. It is inexplicable. But I do at least have the stitch pattern totally memorized now.
Enough. In the mean time, I haven’t really touched my new spindle since I took that picture the other day. But a crack has opened in the dam of “I’m not a spinner” so now I am coveting all kinds of spinny things.
Things like sheep to sock kits…thanks to Cashmere Dreams, who posted on her blog about receiving one. Thanks, beeeatch. (Just kidding, love you dearly but it’s still all your fault even though you don’t even know me.)
Also? I think I might really want one of these. Because they’re incredibly cute, and although I really love the look of those giant old-school spinning wheels, from all the stuff I see on the blogs and around the internet and even in person at the Sheep and Wool festival, people don’t have them around all the time and they’re really big and not portable. And because Aisha just got one. Again, thanks, beeeatch. And again, you know I’m just kidding. I love you dearly even though we do know each other and I’m at risk of you thinking I’m gonna get all stalky on you, which I promise I won’t! Okay, this is getting a little freaky, I think it’s because I’ve been working too hard on those socks.
Finally (not finally, but all I have time for today) And I don’t even have time to find a proper link – but I really need a class. Maybe from here. And some time to take it and practice and stuff.
But for right now I’ve got to go knit some killer socks.
