Here is the beginning of my 2nd Socktoberfest pair of socks. It's amazing how much faster one sock goes when you have done two at once! Of course, the drawbacks are that you have to start all over when you get done with one, but at least you feel like you are getting somewhere a little quicker. Instant gratification and all that jazz.
Speaking of instant gratification, there's nothing like smooshing 3 strands of yarn together on size 11 needles and whipping up a hat in two days. DD Ms. 7 soon to be 8 girl needed a hat last Friday for hat day. (It was anti-drug week and every day was a theme of some sort) This hat is actually purple cotton - like the dishcloth cotton stuff - 2 strands and one strand of variegated ribbon yarn stuff. It turned out totally cute and was a hit with all the girls at school, who immediately said they wanted me to make them one, too. he heeee
Sweet as that is, I don't have enough ribbon stuff for 3 more hats, although I do have tons of dishcloth cotton. (and no homemade dishcloth aspirations) Still, with the extra curricular knitting? Not so much. That's the great thing about requests - you can always say, NOPE =) No guilt, either. My time is worth mucho denero these days, I could totally be napping instead.
