I ended up not starting anything new this week. I finished Gilda, my first beaded scarf project, and am trying to finish up one of the pairs of socks that's been on the needles since last summer.
Why? Because tomorrow it all begins! I have signed up for the Summer of Socks 2008 and Seasons of Lace KALs which both start tomorrow, the first day of summer! As I patiently wait for the time to tick by, I figured I should get prepared.
So I wound up my Ivory Sea Silk for the Swallowtail Shawl that I'm going to start first thing tomorrow and the Schaefer Heather for a beaded Undulating Waves scarf so I can start bribing boys to string beads when they're "bored", because heaven forbid I have bored children!
Then I figured that I'd better get prepared and wind up some of the sock yarn I plan to use this summer.
I would hate to be in a rush, or ready to start a new sock and have to stop to wind the yarn! Besides, with the way I'm sure the socks are going to be flying off my needles, this will make it so much easier to just grab what I need.
There... I've said it. Actually I've put it in writing for the world to see which will most likely assure that I don't knit a single sock or piece of lace for the next 3 months. But what can I say... Reality doesn't live here.
Pictures for fun...
I saw these Skechers at WendyKnit's blog and had to get some. I got them straight from Skechers on sale for $15 with free (FREE) shipping! They are comfortable and ventilated.
Then I had a little shopping spree at Sonny & Shear that included this yarn from Mama Llama that I absolutely love!! The colorway is "Cowboy". I'm crazy about that sliver of green.
Now I must go finish that sock so I have empty size 0 circs for tomorrow!
