Frustration: Part Three

The socks are done. One skein of the Lorna's Laces was about six rows short of two full socks. One is bigger than the other. One has a grows in width from the heel to the toe. They are huge (though they may still fit Dan's foot). This may have put me off of socks forever. Well, just knitting the socks. I like looking at sock yarn.

I've been thinking about knitting lace. I have a couple of friends who are engaged and I've been thinking it might be nice to knit them, or one of them anyway, a lace shawl. We'll see. I've been doing some half-hearted searching for lace yarn and patterns. I figured, I've tackled socks, now I can work on some lace. Am I crazy?

I'm working on another One Skein Wonder for my sis out of some yarn I bought when we were in Florida. The first one I made for her was so small it probably wouldn't fit anyone over five. I am also itching to make the Baby Bolero from One Skein (is there a theme?) in sage Blue Sky Organic Cotton. I have the yarn, the needles, and the pattern. I'm going to start it tonight!

oh man. Sorry about the socks. Mine are great. I'm wearing them right now actually. Really I am. Believe it or not, they are not hot. Did I already tell you that? Oh, but one seems to be inside out. I'm not joking.

I knew it! Maybe I should make a pair with one sock right side out and the other inside out. But you'd probably get them mixed up and all the knit togethers and such would still show. Oh, Jen, I guess some things never do change.
