Yup, that's right...after over a year's absence I've decided to give this another try. I've now got a couple of friends that are blogging, so I wanted to join the cool kids.
Anyway, here's what I've been up to recently...
This is the Mad Cow pattern from the first round of Sock Madness
I used Lornas Laces in Denim & Sand Ridge
I finished these in an amazing amount of time...Started them on a Saturday & finished at 10am that Sunday! Manged to move into the 2nd round with them, too!
Round 2: Mad-tini socks
Yarn is Trekking 161.
Started on a Thursday afternoon & finished on Friday night...14-15 hours of knitting time. I have to say that I really like these socks & they fit me pretty well. I'd definitely make the pattern again. PLUS, these are my first completed pair of cuff-down socks ever!!! Normally all of my socks are toe-up.
Round 3 starts sometime tomorrow morning & there's a lot of buzz about what this pattern will be...lace? cables? I'm ready for anything, although I'm back-and-forth about how much effort I'm going to put into trying to win this round. I have a pinched nerve in my left arm that's affecting my thumb & ring finger at odd times. Nothing I can't work with, but it is starting to wear on me.
Well, I'm going to start slowly on keeping the blog updated for now. At least until I figure out what changes I might want to make to it. I'm off to download some music, later!
