I'm Halfway to Crazy

Oolong 1


Sock #1 is done! It fits well, and I didn't have to shave any length off of the toe or stripe it or anything. But it was close--see the image at the bottom of the post, where the kitchen scale indicates that I have ZERO grams of yarn left! I'm all for using up the yarn I have, but I hate to cut it this close. I'm excited about wearing these with my clogs, this sock feels really good and not too bulky. I will not be wearing them them sandals, but they do look kind of cool, for a photo at least. This will probably be the last photo I need to take until the PAIR is finished, although what will I blog about in the meantime? Maybe my WIP-wrestling project, the long unfinished Noni bag--though it's really too hot to be in the hot sewing room today.

It's much too hot for me to sit in front of this computer any longer, I'd be better off knitting, maybe in an air-conditioned coffeeshop. I'm a total heat wimp these days, and having Frieda and Gretel all over me (mostly Gretel) compounds the problem. Good thing that it's supposed to cool down a little tomorrow, and more on Monday.

Very pretty socks. I agree it's way to hot today. I guess I shouldn't complain cause my tomatoes sure liket the sun and heat.

Those look great! I've had to start some socks and put down my Ravelympics project because of the heat too.

The socks are great, love the shoes, are they Dansko? And those little doggie legs in the background are super cute!

Love how these are coming out! They are way prettier "in person" than they looked on the Twist Collective.

. . . and halfway to a gorgeous pair of socks! I almost said "HOTT" but really, with the heat you've had, that would just be in bad taste, says she who has been enjoying unseasonably nice weather to date.
