Quick Update

One more sock done! This is sock one of my
4th pair. The colors are somewhere between the two pics. The second pic is pretty close to accurate, just not quite so dark. The first one taken in direct sun is a bit TOO bright, but you get the general idea.

After this pair is done, I think I'm going to work on some knee highs for my daughter who asked me today, "Why are you making so many socks for yourself?" lol

Of course I don't have to justify knitting for me, but I told her I'd make her some school socks next. I have some way too bright for me sock yarn that she loves (it's the French Cajun in her)

The only challenge is finding the right gauge. I may do some cable thing or other, or maybe a clock up the side - who knows? It's just a pity that they have to wear solid socks to school when I have SO many little balls of yarn in different colors. They'd be the perfect size to make her socks to match mine in all these different colorways.

As a side point, check out my Ravelry status:
  • You signed up on September 24, 2007
  • You are #35649 on the list.
  • 4729 people are ahead of you in line.
  • 10018 people are behind you in line.
  • 67% of the list has been invited so far
Down from 18,000 ahead of me, I could be in sooner than I thought. That should slow down my sock output by a little bit =) Actually, I'm starting to feel like slowing down soon. It had to wear off eventually.

I like the stripey goodness!

I haven't signed up for Ravelry, thinking I would just wait for it to open "for real". But then I read that they aren't going to open until the entire list is invited! I don't know how that will happen since the list keeps getting longer though! Maybe I should just sign up on the darn list, already.

Thanks for the comment on the new little one. Gotta love him. Just love those socks--you are fast. I got my ravelry invite yesterday--thought it would be around Christmas time--it is awesome--I convinced my daughter to sign up. You will love it when you get there
