Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

Yeah I officially belong!

What a COOL idea is this huh? If you are a knitter and tea drinker, you should come on over and join in! It'll be fun, dont'cha think?

OK, so, I am working on sock #2 of my Lorna's Laces Sassy Stripe socks. The first one is done and FAB! I knit these toe up b/c I wanted to use every bit of yarn that I had. I didn't. The first sock was getting to be so looooong that I ended it before I ran out of yarn. I have a nice little bit left of it. I think it's enough for a heel. Hummmmmmmm, OR I could use it for toes and cuff????? Hummmmmmmm. . . . I'll have to see what I decide to do with it after the socks are done and I KNOW how much I have left.

These are my first toe up socks and I do believe that I like doing toe up socks. I still have to perfect my short row heels though. This particular pattern ended with the heels having "hole" along the short row ends. Although it was NOT the look I was hoping for, upon further review of the picture with the pattern, THEY TOO had holes in their heels. I live with it because it actually looks like part of the pattern. These socks are also my first patterned socks and have YOs that result in lacy areas. THUS, the "holes" in the heels fit in to the design.

HOWEVER, I do not want these holes there for all other socks. Any good sources of short row heels for toe up socks that do NOT results in "Holes"? Let me know will ya?

Next time I'll post pix. It's late now. Just finished with Survivor (poor Bruce - I hope he's OK) and CSI. Re: Survivor, although I hope he is doing well, I hope that Bruce does not get well quick enough to return to be on the Jury. Why? Because I am hoping that they then will recruit the person that was just shy of being on the jury. This will give Terry 3 members of his old tribe out of a total of 7 on the jury. I want Terry to win. I believe that he SHOULD win. We'll see what happens.

What was with Shane asking "you want to do that now?" as the medic informs him that Courtney and he will have to help get Bruce on the stretcher and into the boat? What part of "medical emergency" did he NOT understand? And the wood blackberry thing for next week? BIZARRO!

Shane, pick up your emails. It's the Surreal life. They want to book you already.

I've been teetering on the brink of sock knitting for a while, and while reading your post I decided: now is the time. Next time I'm at Yarntopia, it will be sock yarn for me.

I can't stand watching Shane on that show... he is so rude and obnoxious, and so self-centered. I can't tell if it is the way that the show is edited (always showing his bad parts) or if he really is that dispicable! Yikes!

I want Terry to win too - he is such an amazing player. So strong!

Best wishes, J!!
