Things I've Been Doing Instead of Knitting...

First things first...the mellow yellow socks are complete and their mellowy, yellowy fluffy goodness brings a big smile to my feet.

Now...you might ask, it's been more than a week since your last post. What on earth have you been doing all this time? Well, sadly, there has not been any other knittng progress to mention. I've been:

1. Wishing I was knitting while I painted ceiling tiles (try to never do this).
2. Wishing I was knitting while I ran a 5k for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
3. Wishing I was knitting while I painted dark colored trim.
4. Wishing I was knitting while I painted bright red walls.
5. Wishing I was knitting while I spent hours at the mall with house guests.
6. Wishing I was knitting while I cleaned my house in preparation for house guests.
7. Wishing I was knitting while I painted ceiling tiles (second coat - almost as bad as the first).

But tonight is SnB so there will be no wishing tonight. I'll be knitting bay-bee!! That's right...I'll be knitting swatches all night - woohoo! Ah, crap. Oh well, at least tomorrow I will know what I'm going to knit next and what size needles I'll need to use...that is some sort of progress, right?

Hi there! Love the socks. They didn't seem to take to long to knit either! You mentioned that you knit them up on larger needles...where did you get the pattern for these? I enjoy making socks but hate doing them on little itty needles!! Thanks!

Those socks look so cozy, and are a lovely complement to Otis's pretty fluffy fur!

Beautiful warm looking socks. I'm not surprised you didn't have any time for knitting, that's one big list and well done for the run too!
