I did better on my walk this Sunday, we went around the trail twice and it felt great. I can certainly do better walking than anything else right now. I'll probably be back there tomorrow after school's out, I just hope it's not grossly humid. I sure miss that cool spring breeze we had for a bit there, now I wish I had started a few months earlier.
Nothing new on the knitting front, I still haven't found "the project" that makes my heart go pitter patter. I think it's spring fever. It's just so pretty outside, I want to be doing other things right now. Today was house cleaning day, not something I WANT to do, but somebody HAS to do it I guess. Soon I want to go thru my craft room downstairs and get it sorted out, I have a lot of stuff that probably should go. I'm never going to scrapbook, I'm (probably) never going to sew...I need to get things organized. That Spring Cleaning bug is getting to me again...
I've been meaning to tell Anna about how the Panda Cotton Socks turned out once they dried (in like 3 days-Reminder: Throw them in the dryer next time!).
I like the way they feel, they are soft, but these aren't on my "fav" list. I gave them to my oldest because they turned out a little snug for me and the tops do tend to stretch out just a bit. The yarn's a little splitty (which didn't bother me much) but my usual sock formula didn't work so well with them. I don't like having to re-do socks so many times. These befuddled my knitting brain! (Not that that's hard to do!). You may like it, I had no trouble with Soxx Appeal or Fixation. But these were a bummer. You know how it is when you're just glad you're done? I LOVE the color tho!! LOL!
Remember how we said that there were never any good patterns in Vogue? Isn't this pretty? I do like this one from the last issue.
Okay, it would NEVER fit me, (I never show my tummy like that after 2 c-sections and chocolate) but I adore this sweater...I may make it one day just for fun. Maybe my girls will use it one day.
I'm being so good on my yarn diet that I ordered myself a couple of books from Amazon. And I got another magazine in the mail today...it's a good day.I sure wish I could make it to Atlanta or Nashville to see The Yarn Harlot. She totally cracks me up and I only wish I had half her talent when it came to knitting. Someday I'm going to make it to one of her stops on a tour. Someday. Off to break the spines of my books!
