I think coming up with blog titles is the worst part about blogging. How is that for a great start to a post?
Anyway, I am on a complete roll…
Pattern: Garter Rib, Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot, Mystic Lake
Needle: DPN, US #2
Can you believe that? I finished a pair of socks in 6 days! Wow – what the hell is going on? I don’t know how I got them done so fast….but I will say it was a pretty easy, mindless pattern. Love the Bearfoot – nice and squishy.
Please notice that I changed how I took the picture – see what I’m willing to do for the blog to keep your interest? Right after I took the picture, Nala decided to dig in with claws and teeth…..I was more concerned that she’d pull the yarn but I have to admit the biting hurt a bit. Good thing these socks are Larry’s – he can deal with the bite marks.
I sold my Kromski Minstrel on the Destash blog – got an offer the day I posted it. I’ve been trying to sell the wheel for almost a year by various methods and had no luck so I really think the Destash blog is a great tool. I’m going to go through the stash – I have some yarn I bought when I first started knitting that I will probably never use, and I’m going to try and sell it. Anyway, since I sold the wheel, I decided to spend a little on a digital scale….
The picture is misleading – this is so tiny! But it will help with my spinning and with my sock knitting (I can finally figure out if I do have enough for a second sock!). The rest of the wheel money is paying off a credit card. Sigh. I hate being financially responsible.
Thanks for all the great comments on the knitting community – I think that its really a lot of fun to blog, and communicate with everyone I’ve met online and offline….
Speaking of the blog (because we were, right?) – I’m coming up on my first year blog-versary! Yep, March 6 was my very first post. I want to celebrate it, but not sure what I want to do – anyone have any ideas? How about a giveaway? Yarn? Stitch markers? Cat that bites new socks? One of my kids? Say it and its yours!
OK, I’m off to drink wine, knit Ariann and watch Heroes with Larry. Have a nice Saturday!
