and now down to the knitty-gritty.. (get it? lol) clearly, i need more sleep. hhahaa. ok. confession time. i don't have a big reveal for you... yet. :( i really really wanted to! and i'm pretty close! but man those needles are tiny, and that yarn is so small.... and no matter how fast i knit, it just wasn't fast enough last night.
that being said....
here are my thoughts on the pattern. the outcome? very cool.. if you have the right yarn. though this is my first real sock pattern to tackle (being on small needles and all), i feel that there are many other patterns that would require a more mindless knit... not that i don't mind this, but you know. :) i did make the foot just a little bit too long. can you tell from the pic? it's looking a little baggy in the heel. oh well, lessons are always there to be learned. and very soon, i'll have a pair to show you. very very soon.
enough with the excuses. this has been a very busy month for me! and early next month, i'll be showing you lots and lots of fo's. promises.
would you like a sneak peek? of course you would :)
i know you totally know what this is... and i'm so excited it's done! too bad it's not for me :) though look what i'll be knitting mine in!!!
and then there are these....
and another of (almost) the same with this yarn..
but i'll be chatting about those two tomorrow for the warm up to winter kal that i'm hosting with luvinthemommyhood.
life happens, i know. but i'm hard on myself. i wish i had fully completed these skews within the deadline i set. but little surprises come my way, and i have to adapt. we've just found out that the hubs is off on an exercise for 2 weeks.... and he'll have to sleep in a tent. in winter. ewwwwww... of course he needs some woolies to keep him warm... and so i've had to accommodate for that. i knew you would totally understand. the reason i couldn't quite finish one knitting project is because of more knitting. haaaa... gotta love it.
but of course.. i have much planned for next month too...
so how about it. i wanna see your skews! even if they aren't completed (which is clearly allowed), send a link in the comments below so we can all see your amazing work! and i bet that by the end of the week... at the latest... you'll see mine.
how has the beginning of 2012 been for you? have you been a productive, busy bee? what are your upcoming crafting goals? i'd love to hear from you, and i've just made a fresh pot of coffee. yummmm xo
