I finally finished my Simple Stripes socks. I didn’t weave in the ends because I don’t have a crochet hook, so I’m saving that for later. The 2nd sock came out better than the 1st sock, I guess because of experience. Overall, I really enjoyed the fair isle part of it, but I didn’t like the heel turn part of the pattern. I think I like the gusset way better. Tonight I think I am going to do Pomatomus in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Jeans colorway. It looks like a really challenging and interesting pattern. I am really excited!
Since I’m getting so carried away with my stash and have-the-yarn-but-haven’t-started-knitting-projects, Michael bought me a knitting journal. I am really excited to use it – the first project was the Simple Stripes socks. I like it because it has a place to store notes as well as the knitting labels and a picture. I know I will enjoy looking through it years from now. I think it is also motivating to me so that I start and finish projects and not just think about them. I also ordered a bunch of Knit Picks circulars and dpns so that I have a complete set. Can’t wait to get them!

Bummed about the iPod! I think it’s worth the 25 dollars, but are they saying you’d have to wait for weeks and weeks?
Beautiful socks dar – so technical. It’s like the 5.11d of socks. :-)

Hi There! The socks are so-o-o kool. What little knitting, crocheting I’ve done, I just can’t imagine doing such intricate designs. Guess that tells you about my skills!! Love, Carole
