We get to go to school!

I just checked our schools website, and we are supposed to go back to school tomorrow! Finally. I have had it up to my eyeballs with the girls arguing and fighting.

I started a new sock pattern yesterday, and I must say it is not only knitting up quickly, but this is the best fitting sock I've made yet. Here is a pic of it in progress. As soon as I get the first sock done, I will post the pattern.

Nice looking sock-in-progress! I found your blog through Ravelry. (I'm zozobra over there...)

I pulled out my skein of Colinette Jitterbug in the Marti Gras colorway two days ago. I decided to try toe up socks for the first time. I didn't like the way it looked and frogged after an inch. I needed a simple pattern that I could knit without thinking too much. I cast on for a standard cuff down plain stockinette sock yesterday. I've knit about an inch of the ribbing and thought "Damn! That red is going to pool." I got up this morning and decided to check Ravelry for pictures of finished projects. (We are currently on the west side of the Mississippi River in SE Missouri. Kids are out of school again today due to ice!) Back to the sock, pooling seems to be common with this yarn/colorway. Double Damn! I may try the crocus bud pattern... I'll think about it. I was really hoping for a lovely plain stockinette sock with cute little single color nonpooling rows.

Nice blog! I've added it to my reading list.
