How does that nursery rhyme go? Something about "one sock off and one sock on" right?
I'm back from my short vacation. I still have tomorrow off before I go back to work, but I came home early because I need to get some chores done before I run out of free time. I finished one sock while I was up at my parents' house. I underestimated how much knitting time and zen I would have and didn't bring the second ball to start the second sock. Oops. On a positive note, I really like how this sock turned out.
I gave my sister the Jaywalkers I made for her birthday (and never got around to sending...) Now my mom wants some socks. Bright blue ones. Fine with me--I can always use an excuse to buy more yarn and start more socks. I like the occassional commission. It gives me my "new yarn and new project" fix without guilt!
