Ready for SocksFunny how no matter how quickly a project is knitting up, I always manage to find the next project I'm dying to start... right now, it's the Opal tiger stripe socks. As soon as Ocean is off the needles, here they come! Last night I stopped by Ross and bought a cute little cosmetics bag to use to hold the sock project as I tote it around. I think I'll add some cardboard reinforcing to the sides, just to make sure those toothpick-thin DPNs don't snap in my backpack, but overall, the bag is really great- and only $7! I was going to take a pic this morning, but, well, Cricket didn't want to get up, and since I was her mattress, she didn't want me to get up. By the time I negotiated the release of the hostage (me), I was definitely running late.
I am really looking forward to the nice, long weekend. Thanks to an extra long CSI last night, I made good progress on Menagerie- but it is still going so slowly, especially compared with Ocean! Oh well... hopefully I can squeeze in a good amount of knitting on it this weekend. Now that is a project I am definitely ready to be finished! At least it is turning out well- it'll actually be quite large- big enough for a lap throw, I think. Hopefully the little guy/girl will get some good use out of it- I think it'll really brighten up a kid's room.
The weather is supposed to be lousy this weekend- I guess that's just one more excuse to curl up with a kitty, a fire, and some good knitting!
Hope everyone has a good "Love Day," and a great weekend-
