Glee-fully moving along

Here is my only WIP. Yep in 2008 I am going back to one project at a time. I work better that way. I have finished the ribbing on the bottom and bound off earlier today. Wove in the ends (without trimming, waiting until after blocking for that) and threw it on for a Wip Pic.
Pattern states the next step is the sleeves but I haven't decided how long to make them yet so I am moving straight to the deep V ribbing.
So far so good, even with this pic I am still liking this knit. I was in danger of running out of yarn but luckily saw a post on Ravelry about the Knit Picks shine sport in Aquamarine being discontinued. Yikes, I hurriedly ordered more and I have plenty now.

waiting for yarn

Is hard.

They are done. Monkey socks made out of Koigu yarn. I have long since lost the info on this yarn. This yarn has tried to be many things before finally accepting the Monkey pattern. This have my first try at a picot edging. I love how it looks but it feels like you knit forever before you even start the sock. I will let you know how I like the stay-up-ability of the picot edge later. They are of course on my feet right now. Kitchenered the toe, put them on, took a pic, posted to the blog all in about 4 minutes.

And you know what this means? I only have 1 wip. 1. who hoo! My current knitting project is Glee. (more on her in next post)

Oh, and if you haven't read the Harlot(totally weird) - go. Hysterical.

It's been awhile

I has been awhile since I blogged, a week in fact. The blog still looked current with my Seahawks support the past week but now that the Packers have blasted them out of the playoffs I must move my quite "top model" fashion shot onThis weekend I ordered his cap/gown/tassel and announcements for graduation. *sniff*

I remember a day in 1990 when I called my mom crying and said "he's gonna leave me" and when she asked who?/when? my reply was "(the boy), someday" So as a mom I guess I have been preparing myself (more like dreading) for this next phase of "the boy's" life.

I am both very proud and very scared.

Welcome 2008

I hope all of your New Year's have started on a great note. I spent mine safe at home sipping champagne and doing a puzzle.

My first FO for '08. New socks of course!
Made from my Knit Picks Memories in Redwood. I didn't continue the pattern down the foot on these. I made them more clog socks. Hmm, easy - but it felt like cheating. I wore them today. Nice and soft and warm.
