Yay the knitting Olympics start today. I signed up to keep myself occupied and busy while my husband is away. I will be knitting over the knee socks, and a pair of socks to give away. I went to the yarn store today, and that was interesting. I always come out with way more than I intend to buy. I just needed two skeins for socks, and look what came home with me.
The two sparkly pink yarns in front are going to be for the over the knee socks. Now some of you non knitting peeps may think I am jumping on the crazy train for hand knitting over the knee socks. Well, handknit socks fit better, last longer, are warmer, and for pete's sake we just had two feet of snow fall. I need over the knee socks. I better do a good job to as these are some mighty expensive socks. Shhhh don't tell my husband.
I am also knitting a pair of gift socks. Either for my mom or my husbands, fellow soldier's girlfriend. My husband asked me special to make socks for the soldier's girlfriend, so it will most likely be those. I don't know what yarn for those yet.
Before starting the Olympics in a few hours, I had to clean off my knitting stand as it looked like this:
There are two sweaters and a pair of socks on there. Also in the living room are two other pair of socks I have started and a lace shawl. Yes I do think I have ADD.
So check back over the next 17 days for progress shots, and to see if I made it and won the gold!
