First there was one...



and now there are two.


I had the whole day off yesterday due to circumstances beyond my control (Hubby's pick-up developed some problem and I lost the use of my wheels so he could go to work). So I had a mental list of things that I needed to accomplish and getting my socks done was #1. Now just because it's #1 doesn't mean that it got done first. I vaccumed, I clean two bathrooms, washed dishes (do they multiply in the middle of the night if you don't wash them right before you go to bed?), stripped the bed, did three loads of laundry, cleaned out the cranky cat's litter box, took out the trash and finally finished my socks. What is that old saying, "A man's work is done with the setting sun, but a woman's work is NEVER done." Well that completely explains my day. I knew I wasn't going to be home all weekend so Friday was the clean the house day.

Since I was so excited about finishing another pair of socks, I cast on a new pair. Does anyone else do that. As they are physically finishing one project, mentally they are starting another? Well I went through the list of projects I want to do. Sure does seem like it's a never ending list; just like cleaning house. Whew!

Pretty! I think it's a rule that you have to cast on a new pair just as soon as you finish. It's bad luck to leave sock needles empty.

Totally starting one as I finish another. But if I don't, I'll shortly be overrun by sock yarn!

WW-I would really hate to have bad luck so I am doing my part! There is a new pair on the needles and I am going to buy a sock CD at the LYS with my birthday $$ and see if I can learn some new patterns.

Kemtee-I don't have that much sock yarn, but the handspun stuff is taking up more room than I want. I am seriously considering knitting a man's scarf with some of the handspun to make room for new sock yarn. Doesn't that work out well?? lol!
