Geeks, Socks and Stash

Okay, this is hilarious: http://www.threadbanger.com/post/433/the-top-10-geekiest-yarn-creations-on-the-web

Um, I had a bit of an accident with my debit card and an on-line yarn store. It wasn't my fault-- the place was having a really BIG sale. All knitters know that a yarn sale has magical powers to make even the most committed small-stasher lose all reason. It wasn't my fault. Seriously.

I've been a bit quiet about knitting lately because of the Whole "end of school, production week, fighting with my spouse (we're over it and back to being all mushy, by the way. Of course he hasn't seen my new yarn explosion, either, so stay tuned.) and quitting my job" Thing but I'm still working on a sock (shown below along with my walking cast and several of the right shoes that I have lying about in my living room.)


I'm plotting my next project because I'd like to knit a sweater. I'm afraid, though, it just seems like such a big commitment. Also, I just LOVE to knit socks. I love them. Just my kind of project. But I'm slow at it. I wish I were a faster knitter. It seems like every day I visit the Yarn Harlot's blog and she has almost finished a new sweater and six pairs of socks. It's a bit daunting.

Speaking of my husband, (and we were, weren't we?) his big race of the year is tomorrow. He's out on a training ride--just to loosen up so his legs don't go into shock tomorrow, as he says. Here's how he looked just before he left:

Is it just me, or is he totally hot?

I love your sock...colour, yarn and pattern. I'm a slow knitter too and get totally frustrated at all those knitters who seem to do a sock a day or something like that...

That page had some really funny stuff on it. I didn't see a knitted vagina, though.

P.S. I'm a slow knitter, too.
