I had a goal for this past weekend.
Well, DN2 had a goal as well, and that was to head to the local amusement park.
We did that, but I was also able to incorporate my goal in with hers.
I was bound and determined to knit socks all weekend.
And I did!
I finished this pair knit with Paton's Shetland Chunky (I'd show you the second one but I'm not quite sure where it is, but I know it's around here somewhere!):
And this pair of Moda Dea Sassy Stripes (after I had to rip the second sock back TWICE!):
And this pair of Lion BrandCottage Slipper socks:
(They wear like you have an afghan on your feet, and truthfully they're not pretty -- because they look like something you would put on underneath your armor before going into battle -- but trust me, they're warm.)
And I started on this pair using Moda Dea Sassy Stripes:
And this pair I worked on diligently while standing in line for roller coaster rides at Darien Lake:
Bernat Denim Style (acrylic and cotton so I hope they don't sag too much or shrink too much, guess we'll see!).
Yes I am a sock-making fool. And as I was standing in line at the amusement park a lady looked over at me and said:
Lady: I don't think I've ever seen anyone knitting at a Six Flags before.
Me: Well it sure passes the time.
Lady: I bet it does!
And then we laughed.
Okay, so sue me, not a great conversation, but she was awed.
And I was awed that I didn't drop a DP while standing in line.
I told my friend Flower about it this morning and she thought I also knit while on the roller coasters.
Are you kidding?!?!
I gripped tight and closed my eyes.
Can you imagine?!?!
Sunday I sat in the backyard and knit, knit, knit.
It was wonderful.
Yesterday I went to my mother's house and ate and knit, knit, knit.
What's even better is that my sock knitting is going much more quickly because I'm getting used to it.
I should be learning how to can fruits and vegetables (gas exceeded $4.00 a gallon this weekend), but I will have warm feet this winter.
