Distractions: The Sock Edition

It is a common fact of my life that the less I have to do, the less I will get done. Some people use free days for knitting or reading, but I use them for wasting. But this week, I am swamped with preparations for next week's VBS, the great de-clutter of 2009, and trying to learn Geometry to get a son through summer school... so it seemed like the perfect week to get a couple of blog entries up.

I have been knitting... but very inconsistently and on a variety of projects. I can't seem to settle on just one thing these days. I did finish a pair of socks.

Wanida

Wanida from Sock Innovation by Cookie A knit with Claudia's Handpainted Fingering.
(pair #3 from this book for those keeping track)

And I started another pair (actually in between knitting the two socks above).

Kai-mei

Kai-Mei - Pair #4 from the same book. I'm using Fiesta Baby Boom for these which is super squishy fun to knit with.

But then I was distracted...

Loksins

These are Loksins and have been on my project list for months. I'm lovin' this pattern and you can never go wrong with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in "Old Rose".

Hopefully I'll be back soon with some of the other distractions.

I must be wasting my minutes, because I don't think I've had a day to waste in the last year. Maybe when my kids can find food for themselves in the fridge. Love the socks. My goal this summer is to finish up the ones OTN.

These are all great! Even if you bounce around, at least you're bouncing on excellent projects. :o)

I don't think I'll EVER get tired of stopping by and admiring all the projects you do when you should be doing something else :-) You certainly waste time well, my friend, and I do wish I had such wonderful projects to show for my wasted time...

They're all so lovely! I especially like the Lai-Mei's.

I have that book, now I really need to start knitting from it!! I love these socks!

The upside is that I'm on a finishing spree for long lingering UFO's.
