Here is a picture of a sock I started today. It is the Mermaid sock from Cool Socks, Warm Feet by Lucy Neatby. The yarn is some Koigu that I have had forever. The camera does not capture the colors well at all, but let's just say it is one of those purchases that I keep wondering what was I thinking the day I bought it. The colors are sort of murky pink and barf-like. Not very characteristic of Koigu. I was hoping that making them up into a pair of socks would make me like the colors better. We'll see how far I actually get.
I'm actually a very fickle knitter. Right now I have a 3/4 done shawl, two sweaters, a couple of socks, a scarf and an afghan that I am rotating around. I'll probably finish the shawl and the scarf first, then rotate in another project or two and keep the other things hanging in the wings indefinitely. Once in a while, I will go through and finish most of the unfinished items. But some of them just have to die a slow death in unfinished objects limboland.
Well, the kids start school tomorrow, so I better get some butts in bed. I get a one week reprieve before starting my new job. During that week, I plan to scour out my house. We'll see how far I get.
Then it is off to work -- full time on September 5. I'm praying that it won't be as bad as I think it's going to be. I'm thinking lots of Taco Bell and a REALLY messy house. I'm wondering if working full time won't afford me a housekeeper to clean-up. Wouldn't that be nice?
