Race For The Finish

Angie and I really need to get this knit night thingy together. We met up again on Saturday and enjoyed 4 precious uninterrupted hours with coffee and knitting. I know it has been 2 weekends in a row but it was awesome. If we get the night set up I will have something to look forward to. And we are always so indecisive, having a set time and place will fix that. I have to say that this is the quickest I have ever received yarn from Knit Picks. We were able to open it and oogle it on Saturday. It came in less than a week! That has to be a record or something. So now I have the yarn for the Ballet Camisole in my possession but I have not cast on. I am being
loyal to my Striped Sock in order to have it finished. The yarn is beautiful and it is calling my name…I even got the Knit Picks Options tips and cable that I am dying to try…I really need to finish at least one sock before I jump in on that. Geez, I am already making excuses for myself.

BTW, did you see that the new MagKnits is out? There are some really cute patterns like this. and this.

I did get a lot done on the Striped Sock over the weekend. It seems like top down socks go faster that toe up. Hmmm…well I am past the heel now and racing toward finish line. I think they will be a bit snug but ok. I am slowly but surely talking myself out of sticking to a pattern. I need to stray a little to get them to fit better. I think my ankles are huge or something.

I did manage to snag a quick picture as proof that Diana and Jessie are getting along now. They both decided that they wanted to lie on the couch and sleep. Right as I was taking this Diana decided to come see what I was doing. They like to pretend that they don’t like each other but they do…

Wow, today seemed way more boring than most Mondays…Was it because of the time change? Blame the boring post on it too :-)

Indecisive? Me? Heh! That sock's looking good. And just as you are learning to stray from a pattern, I'm having to teach myself to conform to one occasionally if I want anything to turn out right. :)

BTW, if you think that finishing those socks is hard to do before casting on for the camil, think about me: I'm merrily plugging away at Sheldon's tiny little legs. You'd think something that small would go much faster. I'm only a leg and a half and a shell away from being done. Yay! Thanks for the yarn. I've also got a hat that would fit a giant mutant newborn, and a sweater I'm supposed to cast on for AND finish before the end of the month. Ahhh! I kill myself.

Looks like those cami's are going to be our "February, waiting for summer weather" knitting. *rollseyes*

Glad to see the kids playing nice with each other... or at least tolerating each other.

I love knitpicks!! Your pets are so cute on that couch. When I first got Abby they would never even get close or look at each they are a pack and are so cute. :) Give them time. :)

Have fun with your Knit Picks Options. Please let us know what you think of them. I am dying to get some.

Yes, please, if you pick a time, can I come too? I have been meaning to get together for a while now. I wish that Knit and Stitch had a Knit Night set aside.
