So, I can't think of a title

Well Tuesday WAS better than Monday, mostly because I slept through half of it =) You see I'm in that in between place where you feel like you are coming down with something. Something that you never quite come down with, but you don't quite get better either. It's annoying, but manageable. It would be MORE manageable if I would STOP waking up at 4 and 5 am and not being able to go back to sleep. (Another reason I slept half of Tuesday and every other morning thereafter) I mean....WHAT GIVES?! It IS better than the sort of thing I was doing before, not sleeping at ALL, but it still messes with my days.

At least the TV shows this week have been good. Did anyone else see Pushing Daisies? It's SO twisted but we were laughing our butts off and still laughing about it a couple of hours later. Anyway, the reason I mention TV shows is... I got on a roll during Journey Man and then Grey's Anatomy and I was able to finish it today! yaay me an FO! whooo hoooo!

You'll have to forgive me for not modeling these woolly things in 90 degree heat (with legs that need a bit of maintenance with a razor - you REALLY didn't want to know that, did you?) I tried putting one on and I just said, "NOPE, I'll be taking these pictures in the grass."

I'll be glad when/if Fall ever shows up here. It's SO not fair for it to still be in the 90's!

In spite of the heat, I cast on for my second pair of Soctoberfest socks today. I'm using a bamboo yarn, mainly because of the heat and I've been wanting a pair of bamboo socks since I was told they help keep your feet from being achy.
(I'll let you know if that's truth or fiction someday)

There is a bit of a complication though, but I don't really think I can do anything about it. You see one of these sides is not like the other. The sock faintly stripes in a very light turquoise and lavender.

AND the other side is solid blue.

Now I'm sure when this yarn was dyed, it wasn't meant to do this. It's weird and there is no real hope for there to be a shift in the colors. The needles I'm using are just the right size for this project, so I don't want to change that. If I make the sock bigger, I think it'll be too big for me.

I'm not really thinking of frogging because it feels like a really nice fabric.

So I guess I'm going to have a pair of socks that is one color coming and a different one going.

I can deal with that, I'm JUST weird enough to pull it off.

On a completely different note. Have you ever had something you desperately wanted to blog about but couldn't? It's not a comfortable feeling for me. It's nothing scary or anything, I just can't do it here, and for some reason, journaling in my regular journal just doesn't give me that unloaded feeling that blogging does.

Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there for some reason.

Wanna see a bunny rabbit? He was in my flower garden a few weeks ago. How cute is that little face?

If it is any consolation--it is still in the 80's here in northeastern Ohio up near Lake Erie. (The North Shore.) Love your blog. Good luck with whatever is bothering you.

The only thing I can suggest with the sock is alternating the skeins every couple of rounds - if it is a single skein perhaps you could knit form the centre and the outside of the ball?

yay finished socks! I kinda like the way the new ones are pooling, its nifty.

Well done on finishing the socks - here's hoping for cooler weather for you!
I kinda like the 50/50 socks in the bamboo. You could always do the heel in the centre of the colour change so it's like Two Face from Batman.
