In hope that I might actually knit a sock, I joined Lolly's Soctoberfest. I'm excited. The ladies in my office gave me a gift certificate to Knit Picks for my birthday. I think I'm going to try out some of their new sock yarn and a set of their needles. My first pair of socks on two circs, think it's too daring?

Here's the sock yarn on the 1st level of the home.....I told you I'm a bit of a collector! ;)

Waiting on my Pure & Simple...........

Order shipped USPS (2 day Priority Mail): September 5, 2006

Okay is that 2 days from the day the order was shipped or in addition too? I expected my yarn to arrive today. Of course I had to leave work early to run my boys to the doctor's, but as of 1:00 pm est - no yarn. :(

I'm hoping that it will be waiting for me when I go into work tomorrow!

Unrealistic expectations.............

In my mind, which is a great place to be, I was sure I would finish the front of my Krista Tee this weekend. I mean it was a 3, THREE, day weekend. It made complete sense that I could have committed the entire weekend to finishing Krista; in my mind that is.

Of course I didn't factor in the boys or birthday celebrations or the Maryland State Fair. Nor did I even fathom that I might actually take an afternoon siesta two out of three days.

Here is Krista's progress...........I am/was almost finished the lace at the bottom of the front when I realized I had cast on w/ the larger of the two needles as opposed to the smaller. Looks like I'll be ripping this out in the morning.

In other news, it looks like my Pure & Simple will be shipped out tomorrow for Stitch Diva's Fitted Bodice. I'm giving myself this week to finish Krista and hope to cast on next Sunday or Monday.
