My Feet Are...


So, I got the 1st 16 rows of that stupid sleeve (till it's done, it's the stupid sleeve) and that's it. I have given myself permission to start a sock in the hopes that if i start it, the nagging feeling to start one will go away and then I will be more inclined to knit on that stupid sleeve, let's see how that works out.

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted, not much knitting has been done. Usually what happens is I take the bag with the sleeve out, put it on the table and stare at it, trying to will myself to knit on it, like Uma Thurman trying to will her big toe to move in Kill Bill 2. (BTW, so sad about David Carradine)

That being said, I am off like a prom dress!

Easy Like Sunday Morning...

It's raining and generally icky out. I have a cuppa joe, my kitties to cuddle with, good movies on t.v. & fun yarn to play's going to be a good day.

Went to the farmers market yesterday, so much fun. I got a couple of the most beautiful tomatoes, some fresh ciabatta bread, mixed with some fresh basil, a little onion, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, olive oil & balsamic vinegar... the most amazingly fresh, tasty bruschetta. SO GOOD!

Am going to force myself to knit the doomsday sleeve today.

Once that's done, on to the 2nd toe up sock.

Weirdness note, I had a dream about Reanimater last night, which normally wouldn't be so strange except, I've never seen Re-animater...

Laundry Day!!

I finish my first toe up sock, only one of them, because I feel like I should finish my sleeve before I do anything else. The only issue is, I have ZERO desire to do anything on it. I also brought with my my Sizzle tank.

I have lost the ability to be quirky & clever with my post.
