sock socks socks

So, I restarted the sock #2. I'm really procrastinating it too. But can you blame me?? I always read blogs where people are so happy doing socks. I'm not sure if I can share that same enjoyment. The needles are so small. It seems to take forever!! Maybe it's just been this past experience that has me down on the socks. I'll wait a few months after I'm done this pair and maybe try again. Onto other news, I found this Knit along group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KnitAlong. It seems ok. Oh boy, my kids are going nuts. I have to cut this short.....post more later!

I could just cry!

Squirrly Knits
So here I am......knitting away at my way over due sock......getting a little giddy because I knew I was almost done. I went and pulled out sock #1 to compare and realized that it looked a little different from almost completed sock #2. WAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH. I've been knitting the wrong pattern for sock #2!!! How could this happen?? Have I lost my mind? So then I sit here and talk myself into continuing to knit sock 2 ........cause who's going to notice right? WRONG. So.....I frogged the whole thing. I hated doing that. It was upsetting. Pissed me right off! And now I begin the boring task of ribbing for 2 1/2 inches.....ya. I could do it in my sleep.

Anyways, that's it for now. Just had to come and vent! I'll post pictures of the MATCHING socks when i'm done!

I'm still kicking!!!! Holy, its been forever since I made a post. Can you say that I've been busy?? The girls are both doing great....Caitlynn is growing like a bad weed! I cant believe she's 2 months already. AND..I've managed to get some knitting done too. Nothing to big though. I've done some dishcloths and I'm actually finishing my pair of socks. FINALLY! I want to make a Sophie bag for myself as well, but havent' had a chance to get to town to buy the right size needles!! Thats the problem with living in the country I guess! I should be able to do more postings now that things are starting to settle down around here!! And hopefully you'll start to see more completed knitting projects from me too!!
