That'll teach him.

Yes, folks. Yet again, my secret pal takes the cake. I got these goodies to the left last week. 660 yards of alpaca yarn. 2 skeins of Sundara sock yarn, Knit Lit the Third (signed, no less) and some hand salve that made everything in the package smell like yummy lavendar. And now I know what she looks like. Just not her name. This is most fun.

However, I'm getting so incredibly bored with G's second sock. Tedious gusset decreases are making me want to scream or pull my hair out or something. I'm really wanting to start my Amazing Lace project(s). Tonight I showed G a picture of what I wanted to start on next (after the Birch I haven't really started). He rolled his eyes. Can you believe that crap? I believe he said something along the lines of, "Don't you have a different shawl that you haven't finished in forever?" He just doesn't get it, does he? Maybe I won't finish that sock after all. Ha.

Sure... make me go around with one blue sock and one red sock. Geeze, you NEVER get these things finished!

His sock should definitely be in time out until it learns better behavior. Knit lace! Knit lace!

I say finish the sock... but make one just a tad short, just enough to "feel funny." I'm also on the Birch bandwagon for the Amazing Lace. It's my first lace attempt so I may be looking for help!

I've had a pair of fingerless gloves on the needles for my DH for about two years now. During the winter, I truly intended to finish them until he said to me, "You know me, I'll probably lose them." OK, that remark earned those gloves at least another year on the needles.
